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 plastic bags may be mistaken for garbage at the sorting center.

  • NO plastic bags in recycling. (Reuse or recycle at grocery stores) - Plastic bags get caught in conveyor belts at the recycling center.

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

  • Extra Recycling.

    Regularly have extra recyclables that don't fit in the cart? Add a second cart for only $1.40 per month. If you rarely have extra recyclables, you can put them into a container labelled RECYCLING and set it next to your recycling cart. All recyclables (including cardboard) must be in a container. You can have up to 64 gallons extra recycling. Make sure recyclables can't blow away or get wet.
