Recycling

WHAT CAN BE RECYCLED?

Only the Big 4 should be placed in your recycling bin: 

  1.   Corrugated Cardboard
  2.   Plastic Bottles and Jugs with a Neck
  3.   Metal Food and Beverage Cans
  4.   Glass Bottles and Jars

Everything else does not belong in your recycling bin.

If you think something may be recyclable (such as newspaper or plastic bags), visit earth911.com  for a list of potential drop-off locations.  Otherwise, place the material in your trash.  Do not put anything other than the Big 4 in your recycling bin.  Remember the phrase:  "When in doubt, throw it out!".  LCSWMA will transform discarded waste into renewable energy.

METAL FOOD
AND BEVERAGE CANS

This includes all food and beverage cans made from aluminum or steel.  Throw away the lids and rinse out any residue.  Do NOT put metal hangers, cooking pots and pans or other scrap metal like foil and pie plates in the bin.

Lids on aluminum containers should be removed before the container is placed in your recycling bin.  These lids are small and are difficult to extract in the recycling sorting process, which can result in contamination.  When they are placed in the trash, however, LCSWMA's waste-to-energy process recovers valuable metals from the ash, and then they are sold to recycling markets.

Good's Disposal Services, Inc. offers easy and dependable recycling service for both residential and commercial customers. 

•  We now have changed our method of recycling from curb-side separation to what is known as "single-stream".  We are still recycling what we collect, we are just changing the process to save more time while collecting.   This means we will be collecting earlier as well.  Please have all trash and recycling out the night before your scheduled pick up day.

•  Please review the information below for the details.  Feel free to download and print the updated information for your convenience.

•   Effective January 7, 2019, there is no longer a charge for Christmas Trees.  If you want to recycle them follow the Municipal Christmas Tree Recycling Program(download).  Otherwise, you can put your Christmas tree out with your regular trash at no extra cost.
