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.
