Waste reduction and recycling programs can bring several benefits to a municipality.
They can:

  • Reduce disposal costs, particularly in communities where waste must be hauled to distant regional landfills.
  • Recover value from material that in the past has been thrown away.
  • Save natural resources by recovering, re-using or recycling valuable materials from the waste stream.
  • Stimulate local individual activity and provide local employment.
  • Reduce pollution and save energy.

The end result of a waste reduction and recycling program will be improved environmental quality in the community along with the possibility of economic opportunities.

Recycle Yard Operations

The Town of Strathmore Recycle Facility is operated by H&H Huxted Ltd.  This is part of a 10 year agreement that the Town has signed with H&H Huxted Ltd. to provide this service. 

Recycle Yard Mulch

The mulch is unprocessed material that could include numerous products including treated wood that has been stored outside. As a result, it may contain allergens, diseased trees, bugs or other foreign matter. Users should wear proper clothing and protection when handling the mulch. The contractor makes no guarantee concerning the quality of the mulch, and assumes no liability for injury or property damage as a result of the use or handling or transportation of the mulch. Residents who use this mulch do so at their own risk.

Take it or Leave It!

The  “Take It Or Leave It “service has been an important element of  the recycle facility for the past several years. This service allows citizens to drop off their “gently used” and "workable" items allowing others the opportunity to take and utilize what they may need. Many town and county residents have benefited greatly from this service. Residents are reminded that no expired children’s items (high chairs, car seats, toys, cribs, etc,.) are permitted to be left at Take it or Leave it.

Please do not drop off ANY furniture items at the Take it or Leave it. (Chairs, tables, dressers, etc.) 

As the safe and gently used items are a treasure to so many, citizens are reminded not to dump unusable items in this area but to utilize the HIG (Heavy item garbage) pick up which occurs 5 times per year. If the Recycle Facility is closed, residents are reminded to come back during open hours and not dump items outside of the facility.
