Refuse & Recycling

Why You Should Recycle

According to a recent study by the Be SMART Coalition, ~ most area residents consider themselves ‘sometimes’ or ‘always’ recyclers. Most residents say that they recycle because they want to:

  • Save resources. For each aluminum can you recycle, the energy saved is enough to power a TV for 4 hours!
  • Save landfill space.
  • Save tax dollars.

Help spread the word that recycling is a great thing to do for your community and the environment! Make sure you recycle everything that you can!
