Recycle the Right Way


RecycleRecycling is a great way to reduce waste, save energy, and help the environment. Recycling rules have changed over the years as technology and local services have evolved. Follow current guidelines to ensure that your waste is recycled the RIGHT way. Clean, properly sorted materials are more useful for manufacturers that make new items from your old recyclables.


Recycling is available to all residents in the WLSSD service area. Guidelines for recycling certain materials may vary depending on where you live.Recycle Bin
