Curbside Recycling

Collection Calendar

Curbside recycling is collected every other week on the same day as garbage. Extra recycling is collected for a charge. Put recycling that doesn't fit in your cart in old recycling bin or cardboard boxes (limit 2'x2'x2').

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. Put recycling that doesn't fit in your cart in recycling bins, cardboard boxes (limit 2'x2'x2'), or a 32-gallon can with handles marked "recycling". There is a charge for extra recycling.
