RECYCLING

RECYCLING

     NO MORE SORTING!  Your recycling efforts are easier than ever because of SINGLE STREAM RECYCLING.  Single stream recycling means that material can now be collected in a total commingled fashion.  Through the use of automated separation equipment at the MRF (material recovery facility), faster and more efficient separation can be obtained at a processing level than can be provided in two sort separation on the curb.
