Nevada Waste and Recycling Info and Resources

The Nevada recycling rate is up and down

The Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP) reported a 28.8% state recycling rate in 2012, which is a record high for the state. It also surpassed the state goal of 25%. However, 2014 figures showed a drop down to 23.4%.

The state recycling rate is still below the national average of 34%.

NDEP hopes to begin increasing recycling rates year after year. It works with recyclers and waste haulers across the state to increase residential and commercial access to recycling services.

For example, Waste Management now offers single-stream curbside recycling to customers in Reno. Single-stream recycling makes it easier for homeowners to recycle. Customers simply toss all their recyclables into one bin rather than separating different types of material.

Clark County is also expanding single-stream recycling access in unincorporated areas.

Why does it matter whether you toss recyclables in the trashcan or into the recycle bin?

It’s important to realize that recycling offers more than just an environmental benefit. It also helps strengthen local and state economies by adding jobs and reducing manufacturing costs.

Jobs increase 10-fold when switching to recycling

According to the EPA, 10,000 lbs. of waste sent to landfills creates just 1 job while the same amount of waste sent to recycling facilities creates 10 recycling-related jobs or 75 material reuse jobs.

Benefits:

  • More jobs, more money flowing through the economy
  • Fewer landfills, illegal dumping sites, and less virgin materials harvested for manufacturing

Illegal dumping hurts everyone

Aside from being an eyesore, illegal dumping sites can also lead to public health concerns, such as contaminated groundwater.

Always dispose of waste properly. Penalties for illegal dumping range from civil infractions to criminal penalties in some cases.

***Report illegal dumping by using NDEP’s online reporting form. The solid waste management authority offers a $100 award for information leading to the conviction of offenders.

Tips for renting a roll-off dumpster in Nevada

5 most common dumpster styles

Commercial dumpsters – Businesses use these dumpsters for weekly or monthly garbage hauling service. They are not for temporary use.

Roll-off dumpsters – These are the containers you rent for temporary uses, such as household cleanouts, roofing projects or commercial construction.

Trailer dumpsters – Used by some dumpster rental companies, these trailers are used similarly to roll-off dumpsters but are different in that they are on wheels – this offers the benefit of being easier on your driveway.

Bag-style containers – These small bins are made from durable fabrics and plastics and range in size from 1 to 3 cubic yards and hold less than 2 tons of debris. The “Bagster” container is one such dumpster.

Lowboy dumpsters – Similar to traditional roll-off dumpsters but with low sides, making it ideal for loading heavier debris, such as dirt, roofing material, concrete, tiles and masonry.

Information about dumpster rental weight limits and overage charges

Dumpster rental providers typically put a cap on the amount of weight you can load into a dumpster due to the fact it costs them more money to dump heavier loads at local landfills. This weight limit can range from 1 ton (2,000 lbs.) to 8 tons (16,000 lbs.) or more.

Overage fees typically range between $50 per ton and $100 per ton. For example, if the weight allowance is 2,000 lbs. and your load weighs in at 2,500 lbs., you’d owe an additional 1 ton of overage charges at the $50 to $100 rate, or whatever rate your dumpster rental agreement specifies.

TIP: Be particularly careful of going over the allotted weight limit when dealing with heavier debris, such as concrete, roofing shingles, dirt or masonry.
