Reduce Your Unwanted Catalogs

Over eight million tons of trees are consumed each year in the production of paper catalogs.  There is a free service allowing you to reduce the stream of unwanted catalogs flowing into your home. Catalog Choice allows you to opt out of catalogs, coupons, credit card offers, phone books, circulars and more.

Reduce your catalogs here
You'll need is the catalog customer number (printed near the name/address field on the back of the catalog). This process is much simpler than telephoning requests to stop and the site maintains a record of catalogs you've eliminated.

Condominium and Apartment Residents

You can participate in the City's recycling program. Recyclable items should be dropped off in the dumpster by the Community Center.
