Single Stream Recycling Begins Jan. 5, 2015

Single Stream recycling will begin Monday, Jan. 5, 2015 - The old red recycling bins will be replaced with 96-gallon rollout containers. 

The switch to single stream recycling means you can recycle lots more different items.  If you are currently participating in curbside recycling or are interested in participating in the new recycling program, you must register first.

Please give us your name, physical address and contact information that will allow us to contact you with important information about recycling.  Let us know if you need back door recycling pick-up.

If you registered before Dec. 5, 2014, you will receive your cart in December.  If you registered after Dec. 5, 2014, you will receive your cart in January, 2015.
