Recycling

Be sure to rinse out all containers before placing them in the recycling bin or cart.

Put only acceptable materials in recycling bin or cart—no sorting required.

Break down large cardboard boxes for recycling.

Recyclable items not placed in recycling bins or carts can be placed in another container as long as the container is clearly marked “Recyclable Items”.
Haulers won’t collect recyclables placed in plastic bags since plastic bags cannot be recycled at the curb, and if the recyclables are contained in a bag, your hauler cannot tell if there are non-recyclable materials in the bag and has to assume it is trash. To find which retailers accept plastic bags for recycling, use the recycling directory.  PLEASE NOTE: Glass items are no longer accepted in curbside recycling collection.
