Curbside Recycling

Every resident generates waste and refuse that may be recycled. Recycling diverts items from the waste stream, saves landfill space, and often results in reuse or reformulation, which is cheaper and requires less energy to reproduce. The city's recycling program offers everyone a chance to make a difference.
