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.

  • 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.

    If this is a rare occasion your extra recycling may be picked up at no additional charge. Put the items in a container labeled "RECYCLING" and place next to your recycling cart. You may use a recycling bin or 32 gallon can with handles marked "RECYCLE". You may have up to 64 gallons extra recycling. Flatten cardboard boxes no larger than 2ft x 2ft x 2ft. If you need more recycling on a regular basis you may add an additional cart for a fee.
