Recycling

Recycle

Recycling is very important to Coast Village by keeping our waste disposal fees down. If we put the wrong items in the recycle bins, there is a very good chance we will lose the service. If that happens, our dues are guaranteed to increase to pay for the additional volume/weight of our waste disposal.


Please recycle properly!

As things are changing constantly, please check on the recycle bins for the latest restrictions.

New Recycle Items

Only the approved "Recycle It" items from the above information can be placed in our recycle bins. For other items, please look below for other places to recycle or donate items to keep them out of our trash. We all pay for what gets taken to the dump every Monday, so if we take less, it helps the budget.
