Recycling is Easy
No more sorting; all acceptable materials can be place together in one container. Unacceptable materials will be left for you to discard.
Paper. Most types of paper products that comes into your home, including all cardboard boxes (examples are cracker, cereal, frozen food, dry food, pizza boxes)
Plastic. Storage containers and rigid plastic (examples bottles, jars, jugs, buckets, flower pots, toys, lawn furniture). No Plastic Bags.
Metal. Aluminum/ Steel/ Tin cans, foil and pans, empty aerosol cans.
Glass. Bottles, jars, and containers of any color, shape and size.
Food Waste or recyclables heavily contaminated with food.
Plastic bags are not acceptable for recycling at the curb. In a mixed stream, plastic bags cannot be separated and causes problems with the mechanical equipment at the recycling processor facility. Many grocery stores accept film plastic bags. Check with your local grocer for more details.
Although Styrofoam can be recycled, it is currently not accepted within the City's recycling program. Styrofoam is a very light material and because of this it tends to contaminate other recyclables when collected in a mixed stream. To ensure that we receive the highest value for all other recyclables that the City currently accepts in the program, Styrofoam is excluded from the list of materials recyclable items.
Used motor oil/ antifreeze bottles even if empty.
Broken glass (examples are mirrors, drinking glasses).
