Recycling Struggles

Our staff is continuing to search for ways to reboot our recycling program here in Surprise. As you probably know by now, Recycling has hit roadblocks nationwide. One hurdle is finding manufacturers that will actually use recycled material. Without enough manufacturers using recycled plastics, much of the plastics that make it to a recycling facility are being routed to landfills.

You can help reduce the quantity of plastic heading to the landfill by reducing your consumption of single use plastics. Examples of single use plastics include water bottles and plastic grocery bags.
