Recycling Tips
  • Should you choose to bag recyclables you place into the cart, please use clear or transparent bags and leave open - do not tie or seal.  Clear bags can be purchased at most grocery and hardware stores.
  • Do not flatten or crush plastic or metal items.  Do not place smaller items inside larger containers.  All items should be loose and empty.  Remove all food waste, plastic, Styrofoam and packing peanuts.
  • Flatten cardboard boxes and cereal boxes to make room in the recycling cart.  Additional recyclables that don't fit in the cart may be put in clear plastic bags and placed next to your recycling bags.  Do not tie or bundle:  nothing larger than 4 ft. x 4 ft.
  • Your recycling cart will not be picked up if it contains trash, yard waste or prohibited items.
