Recycling

Recycling

Recycling is one of the best environmental success stories of the late 20 century. In 2012 the United States' recycling and composting efforts diverted more than 87 million tons of material away from landfills and incinerators and instead turned those materials into valuable resources (US EPA 2012 Facts and Figures Fact Sheet (PDF)).  Collecting recyclable materials is just the first step in a series of actions that generate a host of financial, environmental, and societal returns.

The City of Mount Holly provides recycling services to its residents, through a means of a mandatory program with voluntary participation. Each household will receive a blue 95 gallon wheeled recycle container. You will be charged $3.00 per month for these services. This container will be serviced on a bi-weekly schedule. Care of this container will follow the same procedure as your refuse container.
