Trash and Recycling

Help to keep our neighborhood and city clean

Reuse and Recycle Options

Municipal Solid Waste, more commonly known as trash or garbage, consists of everyday items we use and then discard, such as product packaging, plastic containers, glass bottles, grass clippings, furniture, clothing, food scraps, newspapers, appliances, paint, and batteries. The method you chose to discard items you no longer can use or want can make a big difference in our natural resources, energy, and trash bills.

We have all heard “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” at one time or another. Did you know that the more waste you throw in the trash, the more you will pay? That is because the city has to pay per ton to dump the trash into a landfill. Now, consider recycling. Did you know that the city gets paid for the recyclable materials they send to markets? The materials in the recycling stream are used to make new materials, thus using less natural resources and energy to make the same from virgin materials. These materials are bought from the city and thus helps to offset the trash costs. So, wouldn’t it make sense to recycle as much as you can and dispose the least amount possible?
