Recycling is easy!
Here’s how to get started...
You can recycle the following items at any of the locations listed above. In your home or apartment it is helpful to have separate containers for plastic bottles, for aluminum cans, tin cans, and for paper
- since each type of item must be sorted and placed in a separate bin at the drop-off center. A home
collection bin can be as simple as a cardboard box lined with a plastic bag.
Recycle the following items:
Newspapers, magazines, catalogs, phone books, junk mail, office and school papers. Remove mail from plastic mailers.
• No construction or dark paper.
• No contaminants (glue, gum, etc.).
• Keep paper dry.
Wet paper cannot be recycled—it will be thrown away.
Look for the triangle with “1” or “2” on the bottom of the bottle. Includes the following items:
• Clear and colored beverage bottles.
• Milk and juice jugs.
• Catsup, mayonnaise, etc.
• Laundry, dish and cleaning bottles.
• Lotions, shampoos, etc.
• Plastic coffee containers. Remove lid, empty remaining contents and rinse clean. Do not replace lid.
No butter or whipped topping lids or containers — It must have a neck to
be a bottle!
No auto fluid, pesticide or herbicide bottles!
||Aluminum & Tin Cans
Household beverage and food cans.
Empty contents and rinse clean. Metal lids can be dropped into the opened can.
Labels do not need to be removed.
No gas cans, wet paint cans or aerosol cans.
Cardboard & Box Board
Flattened cardboard boxes, pizza boxes, cereal, dry food and shoe boxes, etc.
No waxed, frozen food or beverage cartons.
Cardboard can be taken wet or dry!
Where to recycle other items:
Plastic Bags - Take them back to major chains: Wal-Mart, Kroger, etc. Use as can liners or to sack recyclables.
