Recycling Right Made Easy!

Recycling right is now easier than ever! Just use the helpful Recycling A-Z waste wizard below to get answers to your questions about how to recycle, reuse and properly dispose of hundreds of items. Here's how:

Enter the name of the item you no longer need and hit the Find item button. You'll get answers to options for reusing and recycling, including locations and contact information.

If the item needs special handling, such as a household hazardous waste, Recycling A-Z will tell you how to properly dispose of it, keeping you and the environment safe. Simply click on the name of a drop-off site to get its address and phone number.

Get the free RecycleRight App for your smart phone or tablet!

Available at the Apple App Store, for iPhones or iPads, or Google Play for android devices. Look for RecycleRight and the familiar Big Blue Recycling Cart icon.
