Recycling

Adopted 1984 & updated April 2011

LWVE supports a local recycling program based on the “4 R’s”: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, React; which include:

  • Active assistance for recycling all materials.
  • Adequate city staff for local recycling programs.
  • Household pickup of recyclables.
  • An anti-scavenging ordinance to protect recyclables from being picked up by anyone other than the designated receiver.
  • Regulations to require local units of government to use recycled products.

Support the establishment of organized refuse collection systems to be supervised by the city.
