[ARCHIVED] Promote Recycling in Verona

Trash-recycling- trend graph 2013-2018

Trash and Recycling material collected, data provided by Waste Management Company, over the last five years shows the amount of residential trash continuing to increase as housing units continue to increase in the City. Recycling over those same five years does not show the same increase in collections, in fact, collections dropped by .5%. The City of Verona would like to promote the need to recycle by providing residents some information on what is recyclable, and what can cause contamination of recycled material.

When Verona residents use “Recycle Often, Recycle Right”, great things happen. By recycling everyday items like those shown below, tons of raw materials, time, energy and money are saved. Plus the recycled materials become new products - if you recycle an aluminum can today, it could be back on the shelf as a new one in 60 days

- and the cycle continues.

Place only the acceptable recyclables shown below together in your recycling cart - no sorting needed.

Containers that held food should be rinsed free of food debris and liquid.

Do not put recyclables in plastic bags.

Recycling will be collected every other week - see the map and calendar on the City's web page to determine whether your recycling will be collected on the Green or Gold weeks.

Always recycle:

Flattened Cardboard & Paperboard
Plastic Bottles & Containers
Food & Beverage Cartons
Food & Beverage Cans
Glass Bottles & Containers

Do NOT include in your mixed recycling cart:

  • NO Food Waste (Compost instead!)
  • NO Foam Cups & Containers (Check for options.)
  • NO Plastic Bags & Film
