Easy. Efficient. Cost-effective. Technology-driven. That’s recycling with Hometown Disposal in a nutshell. Our single-stream recycling program allows you to place all your recyclable materials into one 96-gallon cart, which we provide for your convenience. Regular curbside pickup means less work and coordination for you – no more hauling your recyclable materials to your local drop-off location whenever you can spare some time. And because we accept such a wide variety of materials for recycling, less of the everyday materials you use are going to our landfills. That’s a win for all of us!

What we do with your recyclable materials

After we collect your recyclables, we take them to a Materials Recovery Facility to be sorted, cleaned and processed. The recyclables are loaded onto a conveyor belt and separated using a variety of methods. For example, iron-based metals are lifted from the belt magnetically, and paper is separated from the line with puffs of air. Each type of recyclable material is then processed into its basic element to be used as raw material in the manufacture of new products.

Recovered materials are only fully recycled when the new products made from them are bought and used. Thousands of products contain recycled content. Recovered glass may be used in asphalt paving. Recovered plastic may be used in innumerable ways including carpeting, laundry detergent bottles, jacket insulation and park benches.
