Trash & Recycling

From hosting recycling events to offering drop-off facilities to connecting you to external resources, the city is committed to: 1. helping you divert waste from landfills, and 2. increasing the amount of useful raw material recovered for making new products.

It takes a whole community to keep Aurora clean. If every person, every business, and every organization got involved, it would make a world of difference in beautifying the whole city.
