  4. Recycling

    Recycling begins when individuals collect and set aside materials to be recovered through drop-off, school, office building, and other collection programs. Haulers pick up recyclables and transport them to a processing facility where they are separated to create the highest value raw materials. These are sold to manufacturers for making new products. The cycle begins again when consumers purchase products and packaging with recycled content.

  5. Yellow Pages Opt Out

    Developed in partnership between the Local Search Association and the Association of Directory Publishers, YellowPagesOptOut.com provides an easy and secure way for residents to control the number of Yellow Pages telephone directories they receive or to stop directory delivery entirely.
