What Do I Do With...

Every day we generate things we don't want anymore.  What options do we have for our unwanted items?


Today we often have choices for where to properly put unwanted items other than automatically sending them to the landfill, which is usually the costlier option.

  • Convenient curbside collection of basic recyclable materials has been available for 20 years and is included with residential garbage service.
  • Yard waste collection service is very popular and now can include food scraps.
  • There are free drop-off locations for other type of items that can be recycled or reused.

Click on the categories shown to the left under "Your Unwanted Item" to view current options and opportunities for handling several common household items.
