Recycling

RECYCLING REMINDER!

Second and last Saturday of every month from 9 am – Noon at the town garage on the corner of County Road F & 9th Lane.

*The EPA estimates that 75% of American waste is recyclable, but only 30% is actually recycled. Please help do your part to bridge that gap.

RECYCLING RULES

Glass, aluminum, tin, steel cans, plastics & paper products may be mixed together in one container.

All non-recyclable materials shall be placed in the TRASH container.

Do not place recyclable material in plastic bags – all material must be loose.

RECYCLING FACTS

Without exception, recycling is the top action society can do to simultaneously improve: the environment, the economy, sustainable manufacturing and to prevent waste from going into oceans.

When U.S. recycling levels reach 75% it will be the environmental and CO2 equivalent of removing 55 million cars from U.S. roads each year.

  • When U.S. recycling levels reach 75% it will generate 1.5 million new jobs in the U.S. (net)
  • Manufacturers truly want these materials back to reuse in their manufacturing, but they aren’t able to reuse the materials if people don’t recycle.
