Recycling

We cannot deny the incredible impact and benefits that recycling has on the environment. We're dedicated to reducing the amount of waste that can possibly accumulate by recycling what is collected. With our sisngle-stream system there's no need to sort your items, just place all of your recyclables in your recycling container and set it curbside for pickup.

Picked up every other week, please place on the other side of the driveway than trash containers.
