In May, Casper City Council considered changing the recycling program and conducted a citizen survey.  The recycling depots were chosen by residents as their preferred recycling method.  In the survey, the public also expressed interest in recycling additional items, such as paperboard, which the Solid Waste Division is presently exploring.

The depots currently have bins for plastics #1 and #2, white paper, newspaper and inserts, magazines and catalogs, aluminum cans, cardboard and steel cans.  Glass is no longer accepted. Depots are located throughout the Casper metropolitan area at the following locations:

Huber Park on 5th Street
Meals on Wheels on 12th Street
Rocky Mountain Discount Sporting Goods on CY Avenue
North Casper Ball Park Parking Lot on K Street
Wyoming Blvd. by the Central Wyoming Fairgrounds 
Viking Court Cul-de-sac 
Paradise Valley Pool on Iris Street
YMCA on 15th Street
First Street Park in Mills
