NEW for the November 3 General Election: The City of Brentwood will offer community members an opportunity to recycle political signs:
Drop off your corrugated plastic yard signs and metal stands outside the Brentwood Public Works building (8330 Manchester Road) any time from November 6 through November 16.
If the yard sign is made of paper or cardboard, the paper or cardboard can be recycled curbside if it is not laminated.
If the yard sign is a very thin, flexible plastic (like a plastic bag), this cannot be recycled curbside, but it can be recycled where you take plastic bags or plastic film for recycling.
