“One person’s trash is another person’s treasure”
Lillian Hart Tryon

Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about recycling. Recycling unwanted or unused items offers many benefits to you, to our community but most of all to our environment.Reduce Reuse Recycle
Environmental reasons for recycling are:

  • Saving Natural Resources
  • Saving Landfill Space
  • Reducing Pollution and Green House Gases
  • Saves Energy

Often the unwanted/unused items that clutter our living spaces can be re-used to produce new products or can be re-used by some other person. There are better ways to dispose of unwanted/unused items other than our local landfill. Therefore, Winfield Township and Winfield Township Road District have implemented a Recycling program as an alternative way to get rid of your unwanted/unused items.
