Tips for reducing waste

The first step in the recycling process is reducing. Here are some tips to reduce the amount of trash we produce:

  •  Look for containers that can be reused or recycled, like aluminum and glass or ones that can be composted like paper.
  •  Buy in bulk or concentrated products whenever you can.
  •  Avoid items that are made to be thrown away after only a few uses like disposable razors or flashlights.
  •  Look for products you can use over and over again like thermos jars, rechargeable batteries, cloth towels, glass plates, etc.
  •  Look for creative ways to practice source reduction.

Although the City of Lawton does not have a Recycling Program at this time, our neighbors and community partners at Fort Sill MWR manage a nearby Recycle Center. More information on the Center can be found here
