Prepare Your Materials

Please prepare your recyclables as instructed below. Recycling properly saves energy, reduces pollution, and preserves resources for future uses. Even a small amount of contaminants can cause manufacturers to reject an entire load of recycling, which may then end up as garbage in the landfill. This adds to the cost of collecting and processing, which can cause an increase in your garbage collection fees. Here is a link​ to a printable version.

Recycling Tips to Get Started

All recyclable items go in the same container except for glass recycling, whether you have a commercial dumpster at your business or a recycling cart at home. Keep it simple, don’t overthink it! Start by recycling the easy stuff cardboard, paper, and junk mail. To recycle plastic food and beverage containers, make sure to give them a quick rinse, and remove all lids, tops, & caps (place lids/tops/caps in the trash). Any glass jars, wine bottles, and liquor bottles must be placed in a separate bin for glass recycling. Please remove all lids, corks, tops, & caps to place in the trash. Metal recycling includes aluminum and tin cans, empty aerosol cans (remove cap & place in trash, leave nozzle in place), and scrap metal no larger than 30” and weighing 30 lbs or less. No Styrofoam, waxed cardboard, or food-contaminated products can be recycled – please bag and place these items in the trash. Check out our app above that gives answers on how to dispose of many other items!
