One and Done Program

One and Done Program: Waste, Recycling, and Compost Collections

Simplifying your collections: trash, recycling and composting will all be collected on the same day! Easy! Larger recycling containers make it easier for you to recycle more and keep recyclables out of our landfill. Keeping recycling and food waste out of our landfills helps to reduce Green House Gas emissions by reducing methane gases at the landfill. Your support for this new program will go a long way in creating a “Green and Sustainable” Laurel for current and future generations of Laurel residents.
