What and How to Recycle

Recycling Saves Money and helps our environment! Please do your part.
Please place all recyclable items in the proper bins - and please, no trash in any bin...
Loads rejected because of trash or improper material result in increased costs to us and, in turn, higher sticker and bag tag costs to you!!!

Newspaper, Magazines, (non-corrugated) cardboard, and Junk Mail: Throw newspapers into bin loose, not in bags or wrapped with string or twine. "Mixed paper" can also be thrown into the newspaper bin: this includes, magazines, phone books, junk mail, shredded paper, or non-corrugated cardboard (cereal boxes, etc.).

Please no trash in this bin! Styrofoam is trash!!

Corrugated Cardboard & Paper Bags: Boxes must be broken down to lay flat; stack neatly in bin. No pizza boxes, egg cartons, or other food or beverage boxes/holders/cartons, no detergent boxes.
Plastic Soda, Juice, Water Bottles: Only CLEAN, RINSED & CRUSHED containers with the "1 PETE" label (usually found on the bottom of container) should be placed in the soda bottle bin. REMOVE ALL CAPS/RINGS from containers.

REMOVE ALL CAPS/RINGS from containers.
We regret that we can NO LONGER accept PETE 3-7 plastics.

While the DPW has made a effort to support a broad recycling program, we have been unable to find a buyer for PETE 3 - 7 plastic products. Therefore, we must dispose of it as trash at our own cost. The DPW will continue explore alternatives, but for now we ask that you dispose of PETE 3 - 7 products as regular trash, bagged and tagged, in the main dumpsters.
Aluminum Soda & Beer Cans: Only CLEAN, RINSED & CRUSHED aluminum beverage cans should be placed together in the designated bin. No other food containers, TV dinner trays, aluminum foil, pots or pans allowed.
