In-House Recycling Program

The Hidalgo County Recycling Program will be implemented in county facilities to promote material conservation. The county will place clear containers in county facilities for the disposal of recyclables which the county will then transport to a recycling facility. Research shows that for every ton of recycled material you save: 17 trees, 4,100 KWHrs of electricity, 7,000 gallons of water, and 3.3 cubic yards of landfill.
