Bulk Collection updates and Board of Directors meeting live on Wednesday, Oct. 28, 2020

Details

Sort. Recycle. Repeat.

Sorting your waste into the three waste streams is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

  1. Place rinsed mixed containers in a transparent blue bag.
  2. Place paper products in a separate transparent blue bag.
  3. Place both bags at the curb or roadside with your black bag garbage on your scheduled bi-weekly collection day.

Don’t Forget to Reduce and Reuse

With a little more thought, we can all take small steps to change our habits and reduce the amount of waste that ends up in our landfills. By reducing first, we avoid making waste in the first place. Reusing allows us to divert waste from the landfill by giving items a new life—or a new home.
