How to Recycle

  • Labels Do Not need to be removed from bottles or containers.
  • Remove and dispose of lids from metal, plastic bottles, jars & cans.
  • Food containers should be clean (rinsed) for sanitation purposes.
  • Always keep newspaper dry and separate from other types of paper.
  • Flatten boxes and corrugated cardboard. Helps reduce the amount of empty space inside the container to utilize for maximum capacity.

No garbage of any kind is to be placed in the containers provided.

Recycle pick up service from each of the specified locations will occur between the hours of 7:30am to 4:00pm, Monday through Friday.

As we evolve in our program future announcements via this web page will be posted alerting changes in what is allowed to be collected in our bins.
