Doing our part for sustainability

Lakewood’s “Green Refuse and Recycling Initiative,” implemented in 2009, automated the City’s refuse collection system and mandated recycling at properties that receive municipal refuse collection. Automated refuse collection is the most efficient and cost effective system available today, and mandatory recycling participation saves tax dollars by reducing disposal costs and conserves natural resources. This Initiative provides efficient and cost-effective services while providing long-term economic and environmental benefits to the community.
