What can I recycle?

 
 

Bin #1

These materials must be rinsed before placing in the bin for recycling. Contaminated or dirty materials are less likely to be accepted at the processing facility and more likely to end up in a landfill. Thank you for doing your part to make sure this doesn’t happen!

What can’t I recycle?

We all love recycling and hate throwing materials in the trash. However there are some things that we are unable to accept. These things interrupt and delay the processing procedure and add extra costs. The processor will then throw the materials away. Help keep the recycling process efficient by reducing your use of these materials in the first place, reusing them, or putting them in the garbage as a last resort.
