Skinner Waste Solutions makes recycling easy in conjunction with our Valet Trash service. If your community offers recycling and the proper containers are on site, simply put all your recycled items in a separate clear or blue bag and place the bag out with your other trash bag for collection. Our employees will collect the recycling bag at your doorstep, along with  your other trash, and dispose the bags in the proper containers.
