Waste Reduction and Recycling

One of our goals is to increase recycling.  Recycling decreases waste and litter.  Learn more about our efforts by clicking on the links below.


  • Waste Wise Events - We provide garbage, recycling and cigarette ash containers at no charge for use at events.
  • Recycling Drop-off Events - We sponsor paper shredding at county drop-off events and provide staff to help at the events where materials such as electronics, hazardous waste and more are collected.
  • Annual Shoe Drive - We collect new and gently used shoes each spring to be sold and reused in developing countries.
  • Grinding of the Greens - After careful consideration, we have decided to discontinue our Grinding of the Gears program. Although Grinding of the Greens is no longer available, we encourage you to still recycle your tree. The link provided displays a list of locations that will recycle your Christmas tree!
