Think Green! Away from Home Recycling

Did you know North Carolinians recycle 85.4 pounds of materials a second. That’s impressive! But we throw away more than 752 pounds of trash a second. That’s almost nine times what we recycle. The city encourages recycling at home and "away" from home (public spaces) by providing convenient access to recycling units and an easy 'single-stream" process.  "Single stream"  means no separation of recycling materials is needed.  Consider taking the recycling pledge and join the movement towards a better future - Reuse, Reduce, Recycle.  Look for our bright blue recycling containers in our parks, historic downtown, and in your neighborhood.
