Natural resources such as oil, coal, trees are precious to human survival. This is why an integrated push for recycling is so important. We encourage citizens to go beyond recycling paper and plastic. Through our outreach programs, we inform them of various household items that can be reused or recycled and of the local companies that accept them. It's important for us to help divert these items from the city's already stretched landfill... and it's just the smart thing to do!
