  • Commercial Recycling Service

    The Commercial Recycling Program incorporates “mixed recycling” processing which allows businesses to recycle more items and not have to worry about the expense sorting materials or what can and cannot be recycled. We can recycle more as a community and you can promote recycling as a part of your business as a community leader; we hope you participate in the City’s commercial recycling program.

    For high-volume commercial recycling customers  4, 6 and 8 cubic yard mixed recycling dumpsters are available. See the published rate resolution for current fees.


    There are many incentives to recycling.

    Recycling conserves landfill space and energy, and preserves natural resources. Recycling also allows small business owners an opportunity to save money because separating recyclable items from your waste stream decreases the ultimate volume and weight of your waste, which in turn could reduce your solid waste collection costs.
