Recycling Information

When we recycle we are being good stewards for our community, our environment and our planet. Recycling reduces the need for extracting, refining, and processing raw materials so it helps reduce air and water pollution, as well as reduce greenhouse gas emissions. When we recycle, we lower the amount of waste being sent to our landfills, in our waterways, and at local green spaces. Recycling saves energy and valuable natural resources while providing important environmental benefits.

Be part of the solution by recycling to help create a better community, environment, and planet.  Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle!
