Preparation of your recycling

As technology improves, much less preparation of recyclables is necessary. Here are a few tips on how to make your recycling as easy as possible:

  • Follow all recycling guidelines.
  • Please rinse containers. We’re not looking for perfection; we just want to keep odors and pest problems at a minimum.
  • Labels do not need to be removed.
  • Keep caps on plastic bottles and containers.
  • Place all recycling items loose into your bin/cart. Do NOT bag recyclables.
  • Flatten cardboard or paperboard boxes, to allow for more space in your bin/cart.
