If You Live in the City of Dayton, it's Free & Easy to Recycle at Home!
It's as easy as tossing newspapers, plastic bottles or other recyclables in a recycling bin instead of a trash can. All you have to do is use your free City of Dayton recycling bin (you can choose the 96-gallon “Big Bin” or the 32-gallon “Lil’ Bin").
Recycling saves more than just the environment-it saves the community
lots of money, too. It costs the City of Dayton $38.25 for every ton of
garbage sent to a landfill. However, there is no cost for disposal of
recyclables. As the community recycles more, the City further reduces
its landfill costs and helps taxpayers save hundreds of thousands of
dollars a year! All it takes is more participation by people like you!
