Recycling

Be sure to rinse out all cans, bottles, and containers before placing them in the recycling bin.

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

Break down large cardboard boxes for recycling.

Recyclable items not placed in 18-gallon recycling bins 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 unrecyclable materials in the bag and has to assume it is trash. To find which retailers accept plastic bags for recycling, use the recycling directory.
