Our Recycling Coordinator/Certified Compost Operators role is to oversee our communities’ solid waste, recycling and yard waste collection. This service is performed by a private contractor. We receive and respond to approximately 25 calls per day regarding garbage/recycling alone. Our Department also operates its own composting facility and has recently developed an Electronics Recycling Program (without adding to our staff).
From April-October the recycling dept. will be conducting voluntary audits of comingled materials at curbside. Each audit should take 15-20 min. If you would like to participate please contact the recycling dept.
