Recyling Report Card

The Recycle team is working hard to improve the contamination and participation of our curbside recycling program. The team has set a goal of less than 20%
contamination by 2025. To achieve this goal, a new education and outreach program has been initiated. Please keepan eye out on social media for weekly recycling tips and information. See the FAQ section below for more information on what is accepted in Glendale’s recycling program.

What is Contamination?

Recycling contamination occurs when:

- Non-recyclable materials are placed in the recycle container.

- Plastic bags are placed in the recycle container.

- Yard clippings/green waste are placed in the recycle container.

- Trash and food waste are placed in the recycle container.

WHY RECYCLE: Benefits of Recycling

Recycling provides many benefits to our environment. By recycling our materials, we create a healthier planet for ourselves and future generations.

Conserve natural resources: Recycling reduces the need to extract resources such as timber, water, and minerals for new products.

Climate change: Recycling and composting of municipal solid waste (MSW or trash) saved over 193 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent in 2018.

Energy savings: Recycling conserves energy. For example, recycling just 10 plastic bottles saves enough energy to power a laptop for more than 25 hours.

Waste and pollution reduction: Recycling diverts waste away from landfills and incinerators, which reduces the harmful effects of pollution and emissions.
