Whiting Recycling Videos
Various videos produced about our award-winning recycling program.

The City’s recycling program is a single stream collection system, which allows the City to pick up co-mingled recyclables with a designated packer (garbage truck). 65-gallon rolling carts allow easy recycling of paper, cardboard, tin, aluminum, plastic, and glass.
