Terlingua Recycles

To preserve the pristine nature of the surrounding desert environment, volunteers operate a recycling trailer for aluminum, tin, plastic, and cardboard. Residents can deposit these materials into a customized, dedicated trailer which is transported by volunteers 50 miles to a recycling center located within the adjoining national park.  Recent support by the county has led to specific electronic recycling events for items not normally recycled nor accepted during normal trash pickup.
