All recycle is mixed together in recycle bin. Nothing needs to be separated. All items should be rinsed with lids removed. Lids may be placed in the recycle just not attached to the container. Shredded paper must be placed in a CLEAR plastic bag or in a sealed cardboard box. Please empty any liquids from jars, bottles or any other containers. This will prevent spillage and be better for the recycle center and landfills environment.
Recycle will be collected on the same day as your trash. These items should be placed out by 7:00 am. The trash and recycle should be placed out on opposite sides of the driveway from each other. This helps the crews can easily distinguish which is recycle and which is trash. Extra recycle may be placed out in CLEAR trash bags for collection. Black, colored and opaque bags cannot be be used for additional recycle items.
