Recycling

We believe in the concept of using less, reusing more, and converting the materials we reclaim into new resources or energy. Our recycling program is one example of how that concept is becoming a reality.

All households in Bridgeview have received one 18-gallon recycling bin. Additional or replacement bins are available to residents. For information, please call the Village Hall.
