Please see below for the list of materials that are acceptable for Recycling and the list of materials that are not accepted by the Recycling Processing Plant.
Please remember to put your recycling cart/bin out the night prior to service. Remove your recycling cart/bin from the curb once your cart bin has been serviced. If your recycling cart/bin is at the curb on your scheduled garbage day, your recycling cart/bin will be dumped with the garbage.
Please leave your recyclables loose in the cart. Do not put in trash bags as these bags are not recyclable.
Plastic containers come with a number printed on them ranging from one to seven. This number is used to identify the type of plastic used in the creation of the product. Not all plastics are recyclable. There are numerous plastic-based products that cannot break down and cannot be recycled. For example, if a plastic container has a number three printed on the bottle, that indicates that the water bottle has been made from polyvinyl chloride. If the plastic container has a number five, it means that it’s been made of polypropylene. Both Polyvinyl chloride and polypropylene are two materials that are not accepted by most public recycling centers.
We’ve provided a graphic above to help better understand the difference between the plastics.
