Please remove caps, liquids and food products from inside the containers. If items exceed container capacity, please place them adjacent to bin well marked as recycling. Please only use the recycle bins for recyclable materials, not as an extra trash container.
What if I have more recycling than will fit in my recycling container?
We are happy to collect your additional recycling material. Please place the additional recycling in a paper bag, box or container not smaller than 30 gallons and not larger than 50 gallons clearly labeled “RECYCLE” next to your regular recycling container.
How do I get rid of my moving boxes?
We are happy to collect your moving boxes next to the recycle container.  It recommended to condense the boxes into each other to make it more manageable for collection.  You can also flatten the boxes and place them next to the recycle container for collection as well.  Please limit the boxes to no more than 20 per recycle collection day.  Please have your moving boxes out for collection on your recycle day prior to 7am.
Why were there items left in my recycling bin after pick up?
If items are left in your bin, it means they are not recyclable.  Please dispose of these items in your trash container for the next scheduled pick up.
