Please empty and rinse all containers and do not flatten containers. There is no need to remove: paper clips, stamps, address labels, staples, tape, wire,
metal fasteners, rubber bands, plastic spiral bindings and plastic tabs.
If cardboard boxes don’t fit in the cart, flatten and place under cart lid. Do not put your recyclables in any plastic bags when you put them in the container as the bags are not accepted at curbside. Under the program, recyclables will be picked up every other week. Your recycling day depends on your address. We have included a calendar and map below, to help you find the correct collection dates for your area.
