Saving Money - In 2013, the community recycled over 1581 tons of material, which, at the current rate, will add an additional seven years to our landfill. Currently, landfills in Texas have an average replacement cost of more than $30 million, according to Waste Management, Inc of Texas. You can make a difference by reducing waste at home and adding years to our landfill in the process.
