How to Recycle


Recycling is very easy to do.  All you have to do is the follow simple steps:

1.  Fix up a separate container in your house to hold each different kind of recyclable material you normally have in your household.  These containers can be as simple as bags, boxes, or trash cans.

2.  When you go to throw away something in your house, separate out the different recyclables and put them in their designated containers.

3.  When your containers get full, take them to one of our convenience centers and deposit them into the recycling stations.
