Wake County’s Solid Waste Management Division provides waste disposal and recycling services to residents and businesses in Wake County. The division manages 15 waste and recycling drop-off facilities, a municipal solid waste landfill and transfer station. In 2015, nearly 3,800 tons of plastics were recycled at Wake County’s drop-off facilities. The revenue generated from the sale of plastics and other recyclable materials helps fund community waste reduction and recycling programs.
Carolina Recycling Association (CRA) is proud to be a sponsor of the Carolina Plastics Recycling Council’s campaign YOUR BOTTLE MEANS JOBS. The campaign represents everything CRA stands for – regional, community-based solutions to waste management challenges that boost our local economy and improve our environment by bringing formerly wasted resources effectively back to use.
