Please place all household recyclables in your 65 gallon cart and place the cart at curbside on collection day. To avoid interruption with your curbside recycling collection service, the following rules should apply:

    1. Place your blue 65-gallon recycle cart for collection within five (5) feet of the street by 7:00 a.m. on the scheduled pick up days. It is important to always have the cart facing the street (i.e. the handles are located on the cart side closest to your residence.
    2. Each blue 65-gallon garbage cart is equipped with an easy open and close lid and wheels for easy movement to the curb.

1. What can I recycle?

Currently, the only recyclables with value are the following: 

– Plastics #1 and #2 (water bottles and milk jugs)

– Cardboard (cut and flatten)

– Paperboard (cereal and snack boxes)

– Mixed Paper (junk mail, newspapers, magazines, and office paper)

– Aluminum and metal cans and lids, such as coffee cans and vegetable cans

All recyclables must be clean and dry. everything else can be disposed in the green bin to be processed to waste to energy.

  1. All recyclable items can be commingled in the recycle cart. See the label on the cart lid for a list of recyclable items.
  2. Flatten all boxes and place them at the curb in or next to your blue recycling cart and we will pick them up on your recycling collection day. Boxes larger than 18” X 24” must be set out on your bulk pick up day for recycling collection.
  3. Newspapers must be placed loose in the recycling cart and not packed into a paper or plastic bag for collection.
  4. Do not put any items in the recycling cart that are not specified as part of the recycling program, otherwise the bin will not be collected. These items are: tires, styrofoam, aerosol cans, hoses and plastic bags.
