Greening of Agoura Hills LogoWhy Recycle?

On average, U.S. residents throw away 4.3 pounds of "trash" per person making up 200 million tons of solid waste nationally. With over 75% of this trash being buried in wastefields and incinerated, our ability to accept more trash using these methods is exponentially decreasing. Landfills would eventually be forced to close and relocate to new open lands bringing their potentially toxic problems closer to our neighborhoods. Cities and counties are left with the burden of covering costs associated with waste disposal.

Waste reduction and recycling ARE sustainable solutions to this problem. Find out how you can participate in saving our environment and making our city a greener, better place to live in.

How Can I Help?

By lowering how much natural resources you use and solid waste you produce, you are preserving the environment for generations to come. Not only does everyone's participation impact Agoura Hills, collectively, we can help make our state, nation, and world be a greener, healthier place.

Here are some quick tips:

Reduce 

  • Don't buy products which have excessive packaging 
  • Avoid using a bag at the store if not necessary 
  • Have your name removed from mailing lists of products you aren't interested in 
  • Don't buy more than you need

Reuse

  • Use durable items instead of disposable
  • Use your own cloth bag or reuse a brown bag for groceries
  • Fix worn out appliance instead of tossing them
  • Reuse mailing envelopes and boxes when sending documents and packages
  • Use sponges instead of paper towels

Recycle

  • Fully utilize our convenient curbside recycling pick-up program. Throw all of your cans, glass, plastics, newspaper, and mixed paper into the designated bin for pick up every week.
  • When you actively recycle, you limit the amount of trash you generate and can save money on your trash bill by requiring a small bin for trash and requesting more recycling bins.
  • Use the monthly hazardous waste program to recycle your motor oil, paints, and other potentially harmful products.
  • Call 1-888-CLEAN-LA for details on other waste management programs and locations where you can recycle additional solid waste.

Don't Forget the Tires!

Living in the car capitol of the world, we use millions of tires each year in Los Angeles County alone. Recycling tires are beneficial to us AND the environment. They are used for alternative fuel, pavement surfaces, structural support, and padding.
