Am I required to recycle?

The organized waste hauling ordinance calls for all eligible households to have access to curbside recycling. That means having a recycling cart is an important part of the program and a recycling cart will be provided to all households. Other haulers are likewise now required to provide customers with recycling carts. 

Customer Service staff are available to assist you in learning how to recycle. No one will be forced to place their recycle cart out for collection.
