Melissa Recycles

Both the City of Melissa and Waste Connections (formerly Progressive Waste Solutions) encourage you to recycle by placing paper, cardboard, #1-5 & #7 plastics, glass, aluminum and tin in your blue recycle bin.  Steel products are not accepted for recycling in your blue recycling bin that is picked up every Wednesday (NO PLATE GLASS!!).
