Christmas Tree Recycling

Programs that recycle Christmas trees following the Christmas season by grinding them up and using them as compost and mulch.

Electronic Waste Recycling

Programs that collect television sets; computer monitors; computers; power supplies; computer keyboards and other peripherals; tape, zip or optical drives; VCR/DVD players; satellite dish receivers; paper shredders; fax machines; telephone equipment; portable electronic devices (e.g., PDAs, PSPs); radios; stereo equipment; clocks; holiday lights; and/or other electronic products that have reached the end of their useful life. The goods may be reused, refurbished and donated to local schools and charities, or broken down into components (e.g., metals, glass, plastics, printed circuit boards) that are either put back into use or recycled. Programs that recycle computers, cell phones or other products with sensitive data may issue certificates of destruction, if required. The items accepted by individual recycling programs may vary.

Recycling Centers

Centers and drop boxes in supermarket parking lots and other locations that serve as collection points for nonhazardous recyclable household and office materials such as paper, glass, plastic and aluminum. Residents and businesses typically bring their recyclable materials to the center and may collect a small fee for their efforts.

Residential Recycling Programs

Community-sponsored voluntary or mandatory programs that encourage people in residential settings to recycle reusable resources such as newspaper, glass, plastic and metals such as aluminum, tin and steel which are found in cans. The program may supply recycling containers to participating households and may collect the recyclable materials on a regular basis.

Waste Tire Recycling

Programs that accept and recycle or otherwise dispose of tires that are no longer serviceable due to wear, damage or defect.

Yard and Kitchen Waste Recycling

Community-sponsored programs which provide for the collection and composting of leaves, grass clippings, tree trimmings and other yard waste as well as food scraps and other waste from the kitchen. Some jurisdictions require that residents bag their leaves while others allow the leaves to be raked into a pile on the side of the road (or the edge of the property) on a designated day when a vacuum truck comes along to collect them. Some communities provide separate receptacles for the collection of yard and kitchen waste, pick up the materials and take them to a facility for composting. Also included are programs that provide home compost bins which enable residents to create mulching materials for their own gardens.
