[ARCHIVED] Recycling Simplified

Recycling Arrows

Some items seem like they should be recycled, but actually cause more harm than good when placed in your recycling bin. Follow these simple guidelines to help keep contaminants out of your bin. 

  • Only place these items in the recycling container: Flattened cardboard, paper, metal cans, plastic bottles and jugs, cartons, and glass.
  • Never place these items in the recycling container: Plastic bags and wrappers, Styrofoam, greasy pizza boxes, food, electronics and batteries, yard waste, diapers, soiled paper, clothing and shoes, tools, toys, construction waste, medical waste, and scrap metal.
  • Empty, clean, dry: Keep all recyclables free of food and liquid.
  • Keep it loose: Never put recyclables in containers or bags.
