County Waste Management offers one time per week pick-ups for your co-mingled and paper materials. These products are picked up at your home and separated at a recycling plant for processing. In addition the trash which is picked up is disposed of in a waste to energy facility. By utilizing this plant we reduce the quantity of trash placed in landfills and produce much needed energy in the form of electricity.
