How to Recycle
Recycling does take some effort, but the benefits of recycling far outweigh the time it takes. Check out how the process works.
Separate recyclable materials from non-recyclable items. Common recyclable materials include cardboard, paper, plastic, metal, and glass.
Different materials have different recycling guidelines, so it's important to check our recycling program's website or call us for more information.
Rinse food containers and remove any food residue, and flatten cardboard boxes.
Make sure to place each recyclable material in its designated bin or container.
Do not leave items like tires, electronics, or chemicals at the bins. Call the Recycling District for help disposing of these properly.
Items such as plastic bags or styrofoam are not accepted in our recycling programs, and can contaminate the recycling stream if placed in recycling bins. Call the office if you have questions about what materials are accepted in our programs.
While recycling is important, reducing and reusing materials is even more important. Try to reduce your waste by purchasing items with less packaging, and use reusable bags, containers and bottles.
