How to Recycle

  • Place your recycling at the curb by 6:30 a.m.
  • Keep your recycling about 5 feet away from your garbage, if they are collected on the same day.
  • Rinse containers and put the lids in your garbage.
  • Separate paper recycling from mixed containers. Put the paper in a brown, paper grocery bag or a separate recycling bin.
  • Flatten corrugated cardboard, cut or fold it to 2 feet by 2 feet, and tie it into manageable bundles with string, tape or twine. Put pizza boxes in your garbage cart.
  • On windy days, flattening aluminum cans and plastic bottles will help keep them from blowing out of the bin. Try placing a brick or another heavy object on top of your paper recycling, or if you put paper in a recycling bin, stack the second bin with your cans and jars on top of the paper recycling bin.

Only recycle the following items. For more detailed information, click on the listed items.
