Why should I recycle?
It's good for the environment and a good business practice that customers appreciate, but it can also save you money! Recycling reduces the amount of material you throw in your garbage container. Less garbage may allow you to reduce your container size and/or pick up frequency. The result is lower costs. Here is an example:

Without recycling (2x collection): 2.0 cy@2x/week=$80 per month
With recycling (1x collection): 2.0 cy@1x/week=$41 per month
