Recycling Do’s

  • Make sure your recyclables are clearly identifiable and lightweight - preferably plastic.
  • Remove lids.
  • Don’t recycle containers larger than 20 gallons.
  • Recycle metal cans (aluminum and steel) including soft drink, beer and food cans.
  • Rinse cans clean of food and debris.
  • Recycle newspapers, office papers, paper grocery bags and cardboard, including daily papers, copy papers and form feed computer paper.
  • Only small amounts of flattened corrugated cardboard (2 feet by 3 feet) can be recycled.
  • Recycle junk mail, magazines, catalogs and phone books, including all junk mail and shiny paper inserts.
  • Recycle plastic containers (Polyethylene Terephthalate (PETE) Number 1 or High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Number 2), including soft drink bottles, liquor bottles, milk jugs and detergent bottles.
  • To make sure a container is recyclable, check the bottom. The recycling symbol circling the number 1 through 7 indicates an item is recyclable. Rinse out, flatten and remove caps/lids.
  • Recycle glass bottles and jars, including clear, green and brown glass. Remove caps and lids and rinse clean.
