What Can I Recycle?

Our "everything recyclable goes in one cart" system makes it easy to recycle!

What We CAN Accept:

  • Aluminum cans (empty cans only)
  • Steel and tin cans (empty cans only)
  • Newspaper and newspaper inserts
  • Magazines and catalogs, junk mail, greeting cards, and file folders
  • Office and school paper (all colors)
  • Phone books and paperback books
  • Cereal and cracker type boxes
  • Paper milk cartons and other paper food containers
  • Brown paper sacks/bags
  • Plastics (#1 and #2) Salad dressing bottles, detergent bottles, milk jugs, shampoo bottles
  • Cardboard

Please make sure all items are clean, dry, and unsoiled. Any items that have food remnants or are otherwise unclean can contaminant your entire cart of recyclables. Putting non-recyclable items in your cart also contaminants your card and can mean all of your recyclables have to be trashed.

  • Plastic bags (Please take to the local grocer to recycle)
