Why Recycle?

Each day the average American throws out 4 1/2 pounds of trash. In the past, most of this trash was buried in landfills. Today, our landfills are filling up quickly. Recycling is one of the easiest ways that we can reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills. Also, recycling helps to stabilize our trash collection rates by controlling the volume of waste dumped in landfills.

The City of Anaheim takes a unique approach to waste disposal with Recycle Anaheim, an innovative program that combines automated trash collection with a broad recycling and yard waste collection operation. In a joint effort by the City and Anaheim Disposal, Recycle Anaheim is designed to reduce the volume of waste dumped in our local landfills and to conserve our natural resources. This automated waste collection and recycling program has been successfully implemented in many surrounding communities with excellent results.

Participation in Recycle Anaheim allows residents to significantly help decrease the amount of trash buried in local landfills and to help the City comply with the state's strict recycling laws. According to Assembly Bill 939, each city must reduce their waste by 50 percent by the year 2000.

The Recycle Anaheim program allows the City to recycle many types and quantities of recyclable items and yard waste, instead of dumping it in the landfill. Recycling allows us to conserve our country's natural resources by providing alternative sources for aluminum, paper, glass and plastics and other recyclable items.
