LEVEL 1: SIGN UP FOR RECYCLING

Step 1: Call your provider

  • If you have curbside trash service, call your hauler and ask about curbside recycling
  • If you live in an apartment or complex with a shared trash collection, call your property manager and ask about recycling
  • While you're waiting for recycling services, drop off your recycling at the Quail St. Recycling Center  

Step 2: Tell us about it!

  • Use #LakewoodRecycles on social media to let us know you signed up for recycling.

Once you’ve completed both steps, level up!

LEVEL 2: RECYCLE MORE

Step 1: Test your recycling knowledge

  • Ask for a list of materials accepted for recycling by your collector and make sure you are recycling the right materials. You can find out the recycling basics by visiting the online Recycling Explorer.  
  • Create a "hard-to-recycle" corner. Not all materials belong in the recycling bin, but you can repurpose and recycle them in other ways! Create a space in your home for the materials that are not accepted in your recycling bin. 

Step 2: Tell us about it!

  • Use #LakewoodRecycles on social media to let us know how you are recycling.

Once you’ve completed both steps, level up!
