Recycling Opportunities
We are working hard to make recycling easier in order to encourage a greater participation rate. The most important initiative is the curbside single-stream collection program.
  • Materials no longer need to be separated by type at the curb.
  • All recyclable materials may now be placed into 1 container designated for collection.
  • The sorting is now performed at a materials recovery facility.
