Recycling Matters in Greensboro.
Greensboro was one of the first cities in the country to adopt automated recycling collection. That makes it easy for residents to recycle -- as long as you remember a few rules about what the city accepts in recycling:
- The City ONLY recycles paper, cardboard, aluminum and steel cans, and plastic bottles, tubs, and jugs.
- All items must be empty, clean, dry and loose in your recycling can.
Greensboro recycled 25,000 tons of material last year. By recycling, you:
- Support local recycling industry and manufacturing jobs
- Keep prices lower on goods you buy every day
- Conserve energy and produce less pollution
- Protect our environment.
