Reminders:

  • Paper: Flatten your cardboard boxes and keep free of greasy boxes.
  • Plastic: For bottle and jugs, if the mouth is smaller than the base it is recyclable. The new addition of plastic tubs includes yogurt containers, fruit, pudding, jello cups, butter, sour cream, and cottage cheese tubs - make sure to reattach the lid.
  • Metal: Non-hazardous materials only. Make sure the can is empty and remove the plastic tip.
  • Glass: Rinse out as best as possible.


Recycling Tips

  • Mix all items together - no separation required
  • Keep items loose: Do not bag your recyclables
  • Empty all bottles, jugs, and cans
  • No need to remove labels
  • For plastic bottles, empty, crush, and reattach lids
  • For glass bottles and jars, throw the metal lid in cart separately; do not reattach
  • For cartons, remove plastic caps and straws
  • For tubs, rinse and reattach lids
