Community Recycling in Teton County, WY
TCD works with local entities including Integrated Solid Waste & Recycling (ISWR) to promote the recycling of products that can be utilized again or waste that needs to be disposed of properly (Household Hazardous Waste and E-Waste).
On March 18, 2003, the Teton County Commissioners passed a resolution banning hazardous waste from the Teton County Trash Transfer Station. Banned items include, but are not limited televisions, computer monitors, and fluorescent bulbs. Proper disposal and recycling of computers and electronics is important because they contain heavy metals, including lead and mercury, and other hazardous materials.
