Recycling – Curbside Collection
NO PLASTIC BAGS OF ANY KIND ARE PERMITTED IN RECYCLING
Now that recycling is collected single stream all items should be placed in tubs or containers. Plastic bags are not permitted because they are interfering with the sorting mechanism.
Recycling is mandatory by state law and municipal ordinance for designated items collected at the curb of your home or in specified locations in your complex. These recyclables are collected on the first municipal refuse collection day of the week for your zone, either on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. Beginning September 9, 2013 recyclables will be collected in a single stream method. This means all recycling items will be collected on the same day. There will be no more alternating weeks. Comingled bottles, cans, and plastics may be placed at the curb with cardboard and paper items each week. These items are collected by our refuse hauler in a separate truck from household garbage.
Single stream items placed at the curb each week:
Glass beverage and food containers (all colors), aluminum beverage containers, tin/steel food cans, plastic containers for beverages, food, detergents
