Back to the Basics

Remember, these contaminates don’t belong in the recycling bins: plastic bags, diapers, clothes, water hoses, soiled paper, wood, hangers, furniture, bulky items (like refrigerators or televisions), scrap metals, food waste, or Styrofoam.

Focus on recycling these basic types of materials: glass jars, plastic bottles and containers, aluminum tin cans, mixed paper and cardboard.

To recycle properly, please place recyclables loosely inside the recycling cart, make sure to empty containers and when in doubt place the item inside the trash.
