RESIDENTIAL CURBSIDE RECYCLING
We estimate that on average; at least 30% of your trash can easily be recycled without much effort. Just drop these items into the blue or yellow bin
BLUE AND YELLOW BINS
- Paper products—corrugated cardboard; paper bags; press board like cereal or beverage boxes; and newsprint. Shredded paper and office type paper is acceptable if secured in a paper bag. Loose paper will scatter and create a mess.
- Plastic—bottles; jugs; and tubs. 6 oz. minimum and 5 gallon maximum. Clean plant containers are acceptable. Caps screwed on are fine; just squeeze the bottle and screw it on so it doesn’t pop off when compacted. No snap-on lids please
- Tin and aluminum cans. Lids are ok if still attached. If loose, put inside and crimp the can so it doesn’t come out.
- Glass bottles and jars are fine in the blue bin if your bin is not too full. Place them to the side so that your collector can get to them easily. Your collector will grab the glass jars and bottles first then he will dump the remaining items in a separate compartment. If your bin is regularly full each week, we can provide you with a yellow glass-only bin.
