Solid Waste & Recycling

About Our Division

The mission of the Solid Waste and Recycling Division is twofold: One, to provide quality waste management services to our citizens and businesses safely, professionally, and at a reasonable cost. And two, to develop an evolving recycling program that helps protect the environment for future generations.
