Recycling

 

Recycling

Recyclables can be placed in your tan cart for collection. When an item’s useful life is completed, it is important to recycle. Recycling turns the materials from that item into something new, and reduces the need to generate new materials. Recycling helps conserve valuable resources and reduces the greenhouse gas footprint and climate change impacts of materials.

Recycle Right! Use this guide to choose which items to recycle. All items must be empty, clean, and dry!
