Recyling Guidelines

Curbside Recycling

By recycling you are helping to save energy, reduce water pollution, reduce water consumption, preserve natural resources and create jobs.

Collection Schedule

Your recycling is collected weekly on garbage day. There is no limit on the amount of clean recycling you can set out for collection. Put recycling that doesn't fit in your cart in old recycling bin or cardboard boxes (limit 3'x3'x3').

Collection Rates

Recycling is provided at no extra cost with your basic garbage service. Recycling and preventing waste can sometimes reduce garbage enough for residents to order a smaller garbage container for a lower rate.

Curbside Recycling Tips

  • Empty clean recyclables out of bags and boxes and put them loose in your cart so that they can be easily identified and sorted at the recycling center. Clean paper bags and cardboard boxes are recyclable. Just put them in your cart after you empty them. Recyclables in bags may be mistaken for garbage at the sorting center.

  • Corrugated Cardboard. All corrugated cardboard boxes smaller than three (3) feet square, and placed in or next to the Customer's Recycling Cart. Corrugated cardboard boxes larger than three (3) feet square must be flattened by Customer prior to collection.'s Recycling Cart.

  • NO shredded paper in recycling. Because of its size, shredded paper is difficult to sort from other recyclables.

  • Extra Recycling. There is no limit on the amount of clean recyclables you can set out for collection. Put recycling that doesn't fit in your cart in recycling bins, cardboard boxes (limit 3'x3'x3'), or a 32-gallon can with handles marked "recycling".
