We'll provide you with recycling bins and pick your recycling up every other week. Your recycling pick-up day will correspond with your garbage pick-up for the utmost convenience.

 

We recycle plastic containers used for food, beverages, detergents and more. Call our office today at 360-354-3400 to sign up for recycling service and receive your recycle bin.
