Recycling Water Bottles (click here for an informational flyer)

Only about 25% of water bottles are recycled

We throw away enough water bottles in 1 year to circle the earth 4 times

WHAT CAN I DO
* Take it Home: When you’re out and about and have a plastic bottle, bring it home for recycling if there are no recycling options around *Go Green: Use reusable water bottles instead of plastic bottles
*Be an Example: Always recycle to be an example to those around you at home or at work

 

GLASS RECYCLING - Changes

Did you know Glass is naturally 100% recyclable forever?

We are proud to continue offering our residents a glass recycling collection location, however we do have one major change. Please separate your brown glass from all other colors, as it will now be collected in a separate bin. Also remember to NOT dispose of your plastic or paper bags or cardboard boxes in the “glass only” bins. We do have a bin for the disposal of paper or cardboard sitting next to the glass recycling bins for your convenience. Thank you for helping to make Holladay’s recycling project a success!

Recycling bins are located in the parking lot south of City Hall. 

  •       DO RINSE all bottles and jars. REMOVE metal lids. Paper labels are OK.
  •       DON’T INCLUDE drinking glasses or window glass, light bulbs, mirrors or ceramics.  
  •       DO PLACE LOOSE in recycling bin. NO BAGS or boxes PLEASE!!!pic of broken glass

The glass will be processed by Glass Recycling Group, turned into a sand called cullet and used to make fiberglass insulation. The City hopes our residents will join in our efforts to recycle. With your help, more and more glass can be recycled -- saving valuable landfill space, natural resources and energy for a better environment for Holladay today and tomorrow.

 Please help us by donating your unwanted books, DVD's, CD's and Media in the Greenbox located in the parking lot just south of City Hall, next to the glass and newspaper/cardboard recycling bins. 

We can all do our part to help make this a greener Earth. For more information visit www.share-a-book.org
