The benefits of recycling may not be immediately seen, however recycling a four foot stack of newspapers saves the equivalent of one 40 foot tree. Also, making cans from recycled aluminum saves 90% of the energy required to produce cans from virgin material. Recycling of your homes waste, newsprint, corrugated cardboard, glass, and aluminum can reduce carbon monoxide emissions by 850lbs per year. Remember our curbside collection accepts newspaper, corrugated cardboard, phone books, and aluminum cans.
Please remember the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday will delay our curbside collection of recycling and household trash by one day. If your collection day is on Thursday it will be on Friday and Friday’s normal collection will be on Saturday.
