Know what to throw
Make sure you’re putting the right materials in your recycling container—paper, cardboard, metal cans, plastic bottles and jugs.
Paper & Cardboard
Flattened cardboard, newspaper, magazines, office paper and common mail can be recycled as long as they aren’t contaminated by food, liquid or waste.
Break down cardboard boxes. It makes them easier to process and leaves more room for other recyclables
While hard plastic containers like water bottles, milk jugs and detergent containers can go in your container, flexible plastics like grocery bags, bubble wrap and styrofoam require special handling and can’t be recycled in our single stream bin.
Food and condiment bottles are great recycling candidates. Just be sure they’re rinsed and dry before you put them in your recycling container.
Empty. Clean. Dry.™
How to keep all recyclables free of food and liquid.
