We are on the path to becoming a cleaner, greener community!

To make recycling easy, the City is transitioning to a single stream method with more drop off locations. Citizens are now no longer required to sort their recyclables. When recycling is more convenient and less confusing, more people recycle and people who recycle are less tolerant of litter.
