What Can I Recycle?

We work to make recycling as easy and convenient as possible for everyone with Single Stream Recycling.  Your 64-gallon cart will provide a larger capacity for recyclable materials.  This will keep valuable materials out of the landfill protecting our environment and benefitting the County financially through a revenue share of the recyclables.     

The State of Florida House Bill 7135 calls for a statewide recycling goal of 75% to be achieved by the year 2020.  Brevard County has reached a goal of 45% recycling, a milestone achieved one year early, and one that puts Brevard County in a second-place tie among Florida counties with the highest recycling rates.  According to the latest recycling data from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, 23 counties reported a 30% or higher recycling rate and Florida has maintained at least a 30% recycling rate for two consecutive years. Brevard County is among nine counties with a recycling rate of 40% or higher.  Thanks for doing your part!
