Benefits of Recycling
The sale of recyclables, the avoidance of landfill tipping fees, and the potential of expanding this program makes its continuance and expansion a worthwhile effort.
The residential recyclables, drop-off boxes, and the corrugated cardboard are processed at the recycling building. Currently the Recycling Building processes 335 tons of material each month.
