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 one container designated for collection. 
  • The sorting is now performed at a materials recovery facility.
