Why Recycle?

Recycling and composting have many benefits, both environmentally and economically. Though recycling can generate ten times the number of jobs than disposal of that waste in a landfill, ill-informed critics still claim that it is a waste of time and resources. For an excellent summary of the benefits of recycling, take a look the article from the Pennsylvania Sierra Club. Here are some other great resources to help you dispel those myths.

Curbside Recyclables

Posted in Residential

Curbside recyclable materials should be placed in your blue bin and set out for collection.  Paper should be kept dry and we recommend a lid for your paper recycling bin. Visit your municipal highway garage or office for a new bin or lid or call the recycling office for more information.  To explore bin and lid options, take a look at pictures of the various bins we offer.
