TIPS for RECYCLING

Click here for more information on what to recycle and how.

Please recycle only the acceptable materials. All recyclable materials may be mixed together inside the cart. Place loose materials in your cart. Protect recyclables from inclement weather by keeping the lid closed. Only materials in the cart will be collected. Ensure that you flatten and cut cardboard to no larger than 2 ft. x 2 ft. Items placed outside of your cart will not be collected. Maximize space in your cart by crushing plastic bottles and aluminum cans, and cutting boxes down. Ensure that all your cans and bottles are clean and empty before recycling them to avoid contamination of other materials. The City's recycling program will accept all numbers of plastics except for Number 6, which is polystyrene, or commonly known as Styrofoam. If you are unable to locate the number the item is not Styrofoam, please recycle it.
