why recycle?


Recycling reduces waste, keeps our environment clean, extends the life of our landfills, and keeps waste disposal costs down. Recycle mixed paper, cardboard, plastic (#1 - #7), glass, aluminum and steel cans, etc. through your EDCO Disposal residential or commercial waste / recycling service.
