How to Find Out 2014’s Recycling Regulations in Your Town

recycling symbolRecycling is a great way to save energy and preserve resources. While many places don’t have a lot of regulations in place regarding recycling, some communities have specific rules you need to follow when it comes to recycling. A good place to start if you want to find out how you can get involved is to check out 2014’s recycling regulations for your town.

Not all towns recycle all materials; it’s not uncommon for towns to limit the types of materials they accept. This is often due to a lack of funding and facilities. People who are serious about recycling can haul their own recyclables to another area, often a nearby town or county that has the proper facilities to handle recyclables.

  • Check with the company that picks up your trash. Sanitation companies often handle some or all of the recycling in their area. The company should have someone that can tell you what gets recycled in your town and what doesn’t. In most cases they’ll also provide you with receptacles marked for recycling and give you complete instructions on how to sort your recyclables prior to pick up.
  • Ask about recycling at the landfill or transfer station where you drop your trash. Such facilities often have bins or other receptacles specifically for various types of recyclable materials. Follow the posted rules carefully, since many items need to be separated prior to recycling.
  • See if your town has a website. Many communities post their recycling regulations on their official website and make an effort to keep the information up to date. If the website doesn’t have 2014’s recycling regulations, locate the number for community recycling information and give them a call.
  • Look in the local phonebook. Communities sometimes team up with the phone company to print useful information in one section near the front of the phonebook. That’s where you’ll find listings for the various utility companies in your area, rules about digging and cables, and you may also find the most recent recycling regulations for your town.

Most of the time you’ll get a notice in the mail or the local paper will print an announcement regarding recycling. If you can’t find what you need, it’s worth the effort to search a bit – recycling saves energy and resources and is good for your community. Following your town’s regulations insures that you will be able to recycle as much as possible in your community.
