Make every day Recycling Day!
Clark County no longer hosts Recycling Day Events. However, you can Make Every Day Recycling Day! Our curbside recycling carts are only for specific materials (find out more about what goes in Big Blue). There are many other things that can be recycled— just not at the curb. With a little effort, you can still divert to conserve resources and help the environment. The Recycling A-Z online directory or downloadable app can help answer your specific questions on various discards that can be reused or recycled. This page also highlights some resources for discovering what goes where.
Consider donating materials in good condition to thrift stores or charity
