Recycling saves! Reducing the amount of trash by becoming commited to recycling is good for the environment and the wallet. The city collects over 20,000 tons of garbage a year. The average household of three produces approximately 1.4 tons of garbage a year, 84% of which can be recycled, including paper, cardboard, cans and bottles. Even food scraps and yard waste can be composted. If everyone would make a concerted effort to recycle, the cost of services could be reduced.
Want to find out more? The city’s Environmental Committee works to empower residents to be responsible stewards of our natural resources. The Committee meets at 6 pm on the fourth Tuesday of each month at the Ben Robertson Community Center. All meetings are open to the public.
Once a week curbside recycling is provided by Republic Services. This is a service that is encouraged and provided at no extra charge to the customer. Bins MUST be placed on the curb before 7 am the day of collection.
