Recycling at Sea Colony

Sea Colony recognizes the importance of recycling and helping protect our environment. Recycling helps to reduce energy costs, landfills and local sea life that exists right within our very beaches.

The simplest way to observe this holiday is just by looking at what you throw away and make a commitment to recycle more. You can also encourage your friends and neighbors to do the same. On social media, the hashtag #AmericaRecyclesDay can be used.

To better serve the needs of our community, we have seven recycling stations throughout Sea Colony. They are located:
 

  • Annapolis House Basketball Court

  • West Lake by Woodland View

  • Forest Hills Court

  • Singles Court

  • Pine Wood Drive

  • Round Robin Way

  • South Winds Lane

  • Lakeside Circle
