Responsibilities:

Waste Management uses Single Stream Recycling.

Single Stream recycling is the latest technology that provides many benefits to the storing, collecting and processing of recyclable material.

Residents will enjoy an expanded list of acceptable items for recycling and a simpler program because less material preparation is required such as sorting and sizing. Glass, plastic, metal, paper and cardboard can be co-mingled into one bin.
