Recycling Information

By recycling everyday items like those shown below, raw materials, time, energy and money are saved. Plus the recycled materials become new products – if you recycle an aluminum can today, it could be back on the shelf as a new one in 60 days – and the cycle continues.

Recycling will be collected every-other-week. Place only the acceptable recyclables shown below together in your recycling cart or bin – no sorting needed.

Containers that held food should be rinsed free of food debris and liquid.

Do not bag your recyclables – empty recycling directly into your bin or cart.
