With curbside pickup of recycling, it’s easy for everyone to do their part to help keep our earth clean and green. Since all recyclables go into one bin, called single-stream recycling, you don’t even have to sort it. We do! Paper, cardboard, plastic bottles, glass bottles, beverage and food cans, foil, etc. are collected and hauled to our Materials Recovery Facility where it’s sorted and packaged for reuse.
According to the EPA, food scraps and yard waste currently make up to 20 to 30 percent of landfills where it takes up space and creates harmful methane emissions. Only 3% of us compost food waste.
