People often use bottles and cans at events throughout Clay County. These containers are easy to recycle but end up in the landfill simply because there is not a convenient way for people to drop them into the recycling.
Residents of Clay County have gotten into the habit of recycling. Most have a system in place at home to collect several kinds of recyclables. Help us make it easier for residents to recycle when they are away from home.
Recycling containers are available for loan (PDF), at no cost, to event organizers in Clay County. The bins are intended to be used to collect plastic or aluminum beverage containers.
Recycling at Events
The containers may be used at city festivals, conferences, family reunions, company parties, or other events that give people the opportunity to recycle.
Types of Containers
Two types of recycling containers are available. We offer large tote style containers for large outdoor events. We also have smaller bottle shaped containers available that may be used indoors or outdoors.
