At ACES we are committed to our community and environment. We encourage all of our community members to participate in our comprehensive recycling program. Participating in this eco-friendly practice will allow discarded items to be reused in a manner that reduces pollution, landfill, and creates a sustainable source of materials for everyday items.

For more information about enrolling in ACES curbside recycling program please contact us by email us, or call and speak with an ACES representative at 209-274-2237, Monday through Friday between 9 am - 4 pm.
