RESIDENTIAL RECYCLING – We have over 50 community drop-off locations throughout both Counties.
WASTE PAPER RECYCLING containers are placed at participating schools and businesses for their paper and cardboard. Local schools and non profit organizations receive a portion of the money generated by the fiber (paper/cardboard).
