Single Stream Recycling Initiative


We are working diligently to make recycling easier 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 one container designated for collection.
  • This is possible because the sorting is now performed at a materials recovery facility.
