The City Of Gulf Breeze Recycling Program To Resume
The City of Gulf Breeze will resume its recycling program Friday, September 30th, dependent on ECUA reopening their recycling facility on Mon., Sept. 26. Reminder to remove all waste from your recyclable can. ONLY recyclable goods will be picked up for disposal.
Gulf Breeze recycling averages a 16% contamination rate. The national industry average is 27%. Keeping contamination levels low means that our city residents receive service at an affordable rate compared to other areas, due to less sorting and waste at the MRF (material recycling facility).
Gulf Breeze city residents are encouraged to get back to the basics and focus on ONLY placing the following items in their curbside recycling bin:
Clean and dry cardboard and paper
Empty, clean, and dry aluminum and steel cans (no pet food cans due to the plastic liner)
Empty, clean, and dry plastic bottles and jugs
Materials such as plastic bags, cords, wires, hoses, clothing, Styrofoam and greasy pizza boxes are NOT recyclable. Don’t put these items in the curbside recycling bins.
Remember, when in doubt, throw it out! For more information and to check the full list of recycling and , visit: Solid Waste - City of Gulf Breeze
