This service includes one (1) weekly collection of recyclable materials placed in containers approved by the City and designated for recycling purposes. Limit three (3) bins per household.
Non-recyclable materials will be left in your bin to let you know that item is not recyclable.
Boxes must be broken down and all cardboard needs to be cut to a 2 foot by 2 foot size to be recycled. Do not bundle or tie flattened boxes together. Cardboard larger than 2 feet will be collected with garbage.
No Pizza boxes, Styrofoam containers or plastic bags of any kind (newspaper, food, grocery). Grocery bags can be recycled at most grocery stores.
