Recycling


SINGLE SORT RECYCLING


What is single sort recycling?

Single sort recycling allows both residential and commercial recyclers to place all recyclables into one cart, regardless of material type. This makes recycling easier for the consumer and increases participation throughout the community.

What are the benefits of a single sort system?

Simplifying the process results in higher consumer participation, more recyclables collected, and less waste in our landfills.
