Solid Waste

Solid Waste Projects

  • In November 2016, the state voted to ban single-use plastic bags at most retail outlets (including grocery stores, liquor stores, convenience stores and department stores) which effectively implemented Strategy SW.3 of the Solid Waste Section of the Climate Action Plan (CAP) for the Town.

  • An organics waste (food scrap and food-soiled paper) collection program was  implemented at all three of the Town’s offices (the Town Offices, the Public Works Corporation Yard office at 335 Rheem Boulevard, and the Parks and Recreation Department office at the Hacienda de las Flores) in order to divert everyday green waste from the landfill, consistent with both Municipal Operations Strategy M.3 and Sold Waste Strategy SW.1.

  • Recycling services are also provided at public and private events on Town-owned properties.
