Recycle

RECYCLE - it's good for the environment and for our community. Every time you recycle, you are helping your family, environment, community, and beyond.

Did you know that recycling just one aluminum can saves enough energy to run your TV for three hours?

Recycling plastic saves twice as much energy as burning it. The energy saved from recycling one glass bottle can run a 100-watt light bulb for four hours.

The amount of wood and paper we throw away each year is enough to heat 50,000,000 homes for 20 years!

Madera County trash and recycling services are provided in partnership with Red Rock Environmental and Emadco Disposal Services. Both companies accept a variety of recyclable products which go into clearly labeled bins for easy recycling.

If your recyclable material is not serviced by one of the two disposal companies, both the North Fork Transfer Station and the Fairmead Landfill and Mammoth Material Recovery Facility will take your recyclables at no charge.
