Why does Whiting Recycle?
Whiting recycles because it benefits the environment and it reduces the cost of solid waste disposal. You can learn how recycling improves the environment by visiting the City's "Green Initiative" web pages and see how recycling reduces the cost to dispose of the City's trash and waste by reviewing our "Recycling Saves Report". Reducing the cost of disposal not only saves property tax dollars, but in Whiting, it has been the primary reason why a monthly trash pick-up fee has not been instituted to date.
YOUR RECYCLING EFFORTS ARE SAVING YOU MONEY!!
The Mayor's Youth Advisory Council (MYAC) at Whiting High School has produced several short videos about living green in Whiting, including facts, tips, and important information:

Yard bag pick-up for the entire City of Whiting will be conducted weekly. Grass and leaves to be picked up, free of garbage and litter, must be placed in the alley in biodegradable yard bags. Yard bags of grass and leaves will be collected by a truck. Plastic garbage bags may not be used as an alternative to biodegradable yard bags. Plastic garbage bags don' t compost and at times are difficult to distinguish from garbage. Loose piles of unbagged grass or leaves will not be picked up by the City. Residents placing loose piles of grass or leaves in the alley, garbage carts, or recycling carts will be notified.
