Place Next to Bins
Flatten all cardboard.
Bundle and place next to recycling bins. No larger than 3 x 3 feet.
Place used motor oil in plastic one-gallon containers that have screw on caps.
There is no limit on the amount of clean recyclables you can set out for curbside collection. Put recyclables that don't fit in your bins in a bag or cardboard boxes (limit 3'x3'x3') placed close to the bins.
Recycling and preventing waste can sometimes reduce garbage enough for residents to order a smaller garbage container for a lower rate.
Empty clean recyclables out of bags and boxes and put them loose in your bins so that they can be easily identified and sorted at the recycling center .
Do Not Place These Items In Recycling
NO plastic bags in recycling. (Reuse or recycle at grocery stores).
NO shredded paper in recycling. Paper mills don't want shredded paper and shredded paper is difficult to sort from other recyclables.
