High Desert Recycling 

Recycling centers play an important role in the waste management system of our High Desert area. They help keep more recyclable materials from being dumped into landfills and not repurposed. Recycling is paramount as it helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions by decreasing the amount of new materials that are produced. Like solar panels, recycling helps save energy! Recycling is also great for reducing contamination and pollution. Here are some local recycling centers to explore while you’re doing your part to help the environment and put a little money in your pocket. Enjoy! 

 P.S. Please remember to wear closed-toe shoes for safety purposes when visiting ANY recycling facility.
