Our innovative recycling program provides all residents of Precinct 3 the opportunity to save the local environment and taxpayer dollars. Citizens recycle tons of plastic, glass, paper, cardboard and household chemicals, which keeps these items out of landfill and roadside ditches. For a small fee, the Precinct 3 recycling center will also take tires, gasoline, electronics, paint, and home improvement debris, all of which is harmful to the environment if not disposed of properly. Tax savings result from the reduced number of workers and equipment needed to pick up trash on roadsides and county property.
