Recycling Basics


Curbside recycling collection occurs every week! Collection of curbside recyclables is done by Southwest Sanitation. Residents covered by the Lyon County recycling contract received a recycling cart for the sole purpose of curbside recycling pickup. These carts are the property of Lyon County, and must stay at the residential address to which they were delivered.

The benefits of recycling are numerous; including saving water, and energy in the processing of new materials, and extending the operational capacity of the existing landfill; which saves tax dollars for local residents by delaying the frequency of new landfill cell construction.
