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.

  • Empty, clean, and loose. These three words can greatly improve the quality of recyclables placed in your cart. You can do this by rinsing out recyclables and placing empty containers directly in your cart loose, not in a plastic bag. Learn more about how you can Recycle Right - Click here.

  • Extra Recycling - There is no charge for extra recycling. Place additional recyclables in a container that protects material from loss or weather conditions, and set out on the normal collection day, at no extra charge. If you often have extra recyclables, upgrade to a larger 96-gallon cart for free or add a second cart for a reduced rate.
