Recycling Guidelines

  • The most common mistakes made when using curbside recycling is contamination of recyclable materials due to food or grease being in/on containers. Please rinse before you recycle. Sometimes people use recycling bins for regular garbage. This garbage contaminates clean recyclables.

  • Paper towels, Kleenex & any soiled or wet paper (including pizza boxes w/ grease) go in garbage can

  • Do not bag recyclables, keep loose in bin

  • Please rinse containers with food on them before they go into the bin.
