When it comes to recycling at home, everyone has a part to play. Beginning with the way you sort materials, and ending with our efficient recycling pickup, we can make sure recyclables are handled properly for a cleaner environment.
Know what to throw
Make sure you’re putting the right materials in your recycling container—paper, cardboard, metal cans, plastic bottles and jugs.
Empty. Clean. Dry.TM
Keep all recyclables free of food and liquid. One dirty item can contaminate an entire truckload, so make sure recyclables are empty, clean and dry.
Don’t bag it
Never bag or bundle your recyclables. Items should be placed in the container loose, unless your city has specified otherwise.
