The refuse collected by route trucks is processed in our Material Recovery Facility, exposing all recyclables to maximum recovery efforts.


Through the combined efforts of individuals, communities, organizations, businesses and government, the amount recycled and reused continues to improve.

​Strive for Zero Waste!

"​Sustainability is the ability to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” 
It’s a balancing act, but everyone can do their part.  THINK REDUCE!  It's a step toward  Zero Waste and reduced Green House Gases.  Less demand, means less stress on the environment to provide for us now, as well as future generations. Just using less plastic has a huge impact. ​​


Try eliminating just 1 plastic item in your life for one week..could you live without out it now?
Even small efforts support sustainability!   Think before you buy, before you use.  Recycling helps, but Reduce or Reuse have the biggest impact!  Conservation or smart use of water, fuels, energy, or commercially processed food, can make a difference now and in the future!
