Hard-To-Recycle Materials

The More You Can Recycle, The More We Can Do!
 
It is extremely important for residents to participate in the many recycling opportunities offered within Forest Park.  Not only does it minimize the amount of solid waste going to landfills (thus slowing collection cost increases), conserve energy resources, and preserve valuable wildlife habitat, it also finances many beneficial community programs.
