Recycling Complaint Form


Fill out this form to report a recycling problem or complaint. The county will follow up with either a phone call or site inspection at the location of the complaint.

You can help get a workplace, apartment building, garbage hauler, restaurant or retail business in compliance with the recycling law. For instance, a complaint can be filed if a person sees sanitation workers combining garbage and recyclables into the same truck or notices that bottles and cans are being thrown away with garbage at a restaurant.
