[ARCHIVED] League City Recycling Dos and Don’ts


Many League City residents choose to do their part to help the environment by participating in the City’s recycling program. Knowing what can and can’t be recycled, however, can be a little confusing. Tossing the wrong items into your recycle bin or not following the proper recycling guidelines could do more harm than good. If your recycling is poorly mixed, all recycling collected can become contaminated and end up in the landfill. To avoid this, remember to ensure that all items are clean, dry, and empty to avoid contamination. The following is a list of accepted recycling in League City:
