What is Recycling?
Recycling is separating the recyclables from your trash for collection and remanufacturing.
Everyone Can Recycle
Many people living in the region have curbside
recycling services. However, not all recyclables
are accepted in the curbside programs.

For that reason and for people living
in areas where curbside
recycling services are
not available, there
are over 90 drop-off
sites throughout
the 13-county
