Recycle Right

Are you recycling correctly?

Today, there are more people recycling than ever before in the world! We are thrilled that people are making the move towards living a more sustainable lifestyle. Simply tossing items into your roller cart or bringing them to the Stella Roberts Recycling Center, though, may not be enough to ensure that your items are properly recycled and get diverted from landfills.

Here are some quick tips to help shape your behavior and make you a true environmental champion! And when in doubt, please feel free to give us a call with any questions. We’re always here to help.
