The City of Shoreacres strongly encourages all citizens to recycle. Our recycling program gives each of us a way to conserve landfill space by reducing the volume of waste that is buried in the ground. It also helps us ease the burden on our natural resources by recycling old materials such as paper into new products. In a typical community each family generates about 60 pounds of recoverable newspaper, cardboard, glass, plastic, tin and aluminum every month.



Place recyclable paper, aluminum, tin, or plastic in the bin, and set out by 7:00am on Thursday morning. Recycling is picked up rain or shine. It's that easy!

  • Newspaper & Magazines. Newspaper and magazines. No phone books.

  • Plastics. Clear and cloudy plastic soft drink bottles and milk jugs (please rinse, drain completely, remove caps and flatten). Any container with the #1 or #2 recycling symbol. No plastic wrap or other bottle types.

  • Cans. Aluminum & bi-metal (tin) cans only (please rinse, drain completely and flatten). No foil, pie tins, aerosol cans of any type, or scrap metal.

  • Glass. Glass is no longer recyclable.

For questions concerning trash service please call Decker Dispose-All at 281.559.4939.

Refrigerators & Freezers
Most older refrigeration equipment contains freon, a chemical known as Chlorinated Fluorocarbon (CFC). CFCs can destroy the earth's protective ozone coating, leading to increased risk of sunburn, cataracts, and skin cancer for the entire population of the planet (human AND animal).

When disposing of an old refrigerator, heat pump, or air conditioner, be sure the CFCs are safely disposed of first. This can be accomplished by using a hauler who will perform this important service. Be sure to ask before you let them take your old equipment away.

A number of international treaties, federal and state laws govern the use of CFCs. Handlers of refrigeration equipment can get information on laws and recycling equipment from Section 608 Refrigerant Recycling rule at www.epa.gov.

Rechargeable Batteries
Nickel-Cadmium rechargeable batteries (Ni-Cd) contain cadmium, a metal that can cause blood and reproductive damage, among other problems. These batteries are commonly used in portable telephones, power tools, radios, video tape recorders, and laptop computers. These batteries pose little hazard in use (the cadmium is in a stable form), but are a danger in landfills. Batteries that contain nickel and cadmium must be recycled or disposed of in accordance with local laws.
