Why Be Better Recyclers?

Everyone knows that recycling is good for the environment. But not everyone knows what goes where. And this is causing problems.

  • Our recycling and organics programs are designed to manage specific items: bottles, cans, paper, cardboard, plant debris, and food.

  • Putting trash in the recycling or organics containers contaminates them.

  • Up to 25% of recycling is landfilled because there is too much trash in it.
