Recycling Is One Thing You Can Do To Help Your Community
The Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District is encouraging Hamilton County residents to recycle this fall.
Recycling is an important and easy habit to form. Not only does it keep material out of landfills, but recycling also conserves energy, saves natural resources and creates jobs. The materials that you recycle are turned into more paper products, new aluminum cans, packaging, insulation and even carpeting. Your waste output can be reduced significantly if you recycle -- it also benefits our entire community!
The following items are accepted in curbside and drop-off recycling:
- plastic bottles and jugs (lids are OK if left on empty bottle)
- glass bottles and jars
- aluminum and steel cans
- empty aerosol cans (remove tips)
- newspapers, magazines, phone books
- brown paper grocery bags
- junk mail and envelopes
- office paper
- cardboard (please flatten to conserve space)
- paperboard (i.e., cereal boxes)
- clean pizza boxes (please remove food)
Recycling isn’t just important for the environment, but also for the economy. Jobs are created by recycling, in fact – recycling creates 10 times as many jobs as landfilling.
This is one thing you can do to help better your community! To get a bin, request a recycling cart or learn more about what you can recycle, call the Recycling Hotline at 352-3200 or visit 5916000.com to request a cart.
