Recycling Schedule & Information

Everyone remembers the three “R’s” of the environment - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle! We feel like we are now getting a good handle on the Reuse and Recycle part, but lets try working on the third “R”—REDUCE. All of us can take part in reducing our waste, whether its at home, work or school—just consider things such as buying items with less packaging, composting at your home or using both sides of a piece of paper before recycling it! Simple steps in reducing your waste every day will go a long way in benefiting this generation and the next.

Here are some ways you can do your part to reduce waste in your daily lives:
