THE AVERAGE PERSON DISPOSES OF 6.5 POUNDS OF WASTE EVERY DAY!
The City of Coppell and Keep Coppell Beautiful encourage all citizens to find creative ways to reduce and better manage our solid waste stream (trash) through a coordinated mix of practices that includes reducing the amount of waste, reusing what we can and recycling materials that can be used as raw materials for new products, then buying products made from recycled materials.
Where can I ...?
Remove My Name From Junk Mail Lists
Eco-Cycle (ecocycle.org), MailStopper (mailstopper.tonic.com) and Catalog Choice (catalogchoice.org) all provide information on how to remove yourself from junk mail lists and catalog mailing lists.
Recycle Household Goods
Reusable household goods can be recycled at social service agencies. Many have pick up service, like Christian Community Action in Lewisville.
Recycle Paper at the Schools and Churches
All dry paper can be recycled at each school in Coppell and most churches in the green and yellow bins. Accepts magazines, newspaper, catalogs, office and home paper and mail. These bins provide rebates for the organization. Not acceptable: cardboard, paperboard (like cereal boxes) or phone books.
Recycle Cans and Bottles
Recycle cans and bottles in residential curbside carts. Multi-family housing residents - check with your management to see if recycling is a service.
Recycle Corrugated Cardboard
Flatten boxes, corrugated and paperboard and put in residential curbside carts.
Recycle Yard Trimmings in the Backyard
Composting grass and leaves in a compost pile can reduce up to 1/10th of your summer lawn trimmings from going out as waste and can be a great benefit to the health of your landscape.
