recycle-binsIf you’re ready to do your part, you can start right at the local level. Many towns have incorporated recycling programs into their umbrella of local government functions.

If your town doesn’t have a recycling program, you can take your recyclables to one of Moore County’s Solid Waste Compactors and Recycling Centers. They are open Monday through Saturday from 7 am to 7 pm and Sundays/holidays from 1 to 6 pm. Please check with individual centers to see which items they accept.
