The M.e.t. partners with member communities to develop, deliver and support environmental programs and services, and to educate citizens on sound environmental practices.
12 recycling centers accept a variety of recyclables, including aluminum cans, #1 and #2 plastic bottles, glass bottles, newspapers, office paper, magazines, oil, antifreeze, phone books, and batteries. These centers not only provide recycling, but also jobs. The M.e.t. employs more than 100 people with disabilities to staff our centers and sort recyclables.
The M.e.t. produces educational resources for member governments, schools and non-profits, and also provides recycling opportunities for event organizers, schools and other entities. The M.e.t. publishes an annual recycling directory, listing all local recyclers and companies that provide recycling services.
