Recycling brush is a highly effective way to help protect the environment, and Recology Del Norte is proud to offer an optional Brush Collection service to its customers.
Don't send landscape materials to the landfill; Recycle them instead! On average, approximately 200 pounds of brush items are dumped annually from each Del Norte County household every year. That waste decomposes and creates methane gas, which is 23 times more potent than carbon dioxide and is directly attributed to climate change. We encourage you to look into starting a brush collection program. Other than being the environmentally friendly thing to do, most residents who participate in the brush collection program see a significant decrease in their trash if a successful brush collection program is in place.
Individual residents of multi-family dwellings are not able to sign up for brush collection service on their own, so talk to your property manager and see if they would like to utilize this service for an additional fee. On average, these services are offered at a reduced rate compared to Trash service. Your complex may be able to reduce its Trash service fees if a successful Brush collection program is in place. We also offer Temporary Brush Bin service for a one time service.
