The City's Environment Division is proud to produce Our Green Guide, a comprehensive household waste reduction manual. This guide will help you properly dispose of everything from an old computer you no longer need, to leftover paint, and even trophies and clothing the kids have outgrown.
The booklet includes information about the City's landfill and recycling programs, what to do with hazardous wastes, electronic waste, "green" community groups and an A to Z listing of items you may be ready to donate for re-use, sell or determine the safest disposal options.
To enjoy Our Green Guide, download the PDF below, or click on items in the list of recyclables to see how best to dispose of them.
