Curbside Recycling to the Madison County Community Since 2010
Each day, we throw away a tremendous amount of what we call "trash". However, much of what we discard are actually recyclable materials.
It All Adds Up....
Paper, plastic, and metals can all be used to make new items; creating jobs, conserving energy, landfill space, and our Earth's natural resources.
We Can Make a Difference
As our landfills become full, it’s vitally important that we find new and more efficient ways of reusing the materials we throw away.
Help Us Grow a Greener Community
It's up to you and me. For our planet. For future generations.
A small change can make a huge impact.
Recycling Myths Debunked
Myth #1 Recycled stuff just ends up in the trash anyway.
Truth: While we can't say that no item placed in a recycling bin has ever ended up in a landfill, we can assure you that everything we accept is recycled. Currently, an average of $1 is spent to landfill materials worth $3 - it makes no sense, at all. Manufacturers need your stuff to make new stuff!
Myth #2The trash company sorts through my trash and removes all the recyclable materials.
Truth: Sorry! We know some people want to believe it, but don't fool yourselves. Absolutely everything thrown in the trash in our community ends up in a landfill. Separating trash from recyclables is prohibitive in nature and almost never happens. Some cities have this type of program, but it's highly ineffective, expensive and uncommon.
Myth #3 Recycling is tedious and time consuming.
Truth: Let's face it, it's not 1985, anymore. The days of separating materials, removing caps, crushing cans and removing their tabs is over. These days, it's become so easy that more Americans recycle than vote. There are approximately 20,000 curbside programs and drop sites in our country because people use and support them.
