Questions & Answers from March 2021 Customer Survey!

We thank you for so many to participate in our March survey. The information within it tells us so much. We are in the process of updating our website, which will be a big step in keeping all informed of new things coming to recycling and waste management. In the survey we learn many do know how to sort the materials correctly. This is so important on your visits. It is a huge process we need to keep cost as low as they can be. Currently recycling is free to our customers, which is a good thing. By asking our staff for assisting in teaching, we hope all will become an expert recycler soon.
