Reduce Reuse Recycle

The City of Avalon is committed to diverting waste from our landfill.

By reusing and recycling more, Avalon residents, visitors and businesses can have less trash and save space at the city landfill. But you have to recycle right! Separate your recyclable materials from the trash to help ensure they get recycled.

While you are downtown, enjoying Avalon Harbor and the beaches, or at one of our great parks, please be sure to recycle your beverage containers, such as aluminum cans, plastic bottles, glass bottles. Use the recycling side of the trash and recycling bins found around town. By putting your beverage container in the correct bin it helps ensure it is recycled.

Notify City Staff regarding issues with compliance with the recycling program by submitting an observed violation form online
