Veterans Day Schedule

There will be REGULAR curbside collections of recycling, yard trim, food scraps and trash the week of Veterans Day.


Is it recyclable? Trash? HHW?

kbyt game (1)

We all have questions about what to do with certain items. Items we hear a lot are milk cartons, plastic bags, coffee pods, cooking oil, Styrofoam and take-out containers.

Play our updated game to see what actually goes in your recycling bin and learn about the other outlets we have to reduce, reuse and recycle your stuff. How to play: drag and drop the items to the correct place.

There have been some changes to our curbside program - test your skills! Print your certificate and bring it to our main office (9801 Broken Land Parkway) to receive a FREE indoor recycling collection container (Limit one per household, while supplies last).
