Recycling Service

Recycling means less waste in your dumpster! Which could possibly mean they need emptying less often...

You may be able to cut your trash collection in half!

Aluminum Cans

We pay for aluminum cans that your bring in.

We DO NOT take aluminum siding, windows, doors or gutters etc...

We provide much needed community services, including lawn care, janitorial services and all the recycling services for our area.


There is only so much land so the more we recycle the longer our landfills last.
