General Guidelines

Recycling Do's & Don'ts

  • Do not put recyclable materials in plastic bags.
  • All recyclable materials should be rinsed free of food with caps/lids removed. Dispose of non-metal caps and lids in the trash.
  • Cardboard boxes must be flattened into 3 feet by 3 feet squares, and placed in the toter. Cardboard boxes placed outside of the toter must be flattened into 4 feet by 4 feet squares.
  • Use your blue cart for recyclables only. Recycling carts containing refuse will not be collected.

Remember, prepaid stickers are not required on properly prepared recyclables.
