REQUEST FOR ADDITIONAL GARBAGE / RECYCLING CARTS

Participants are asked to keep recycling free of contamination by putting only acceptable items into recycling containers. When the wrong items are included, or food scraps or liquids get into the batch, they can cause a whole truckload of recyclables to be wasted.

  • Please keep newspapers dry.
  • Do not place material in plastic bags.
  • Rinse all containers, bottles, jars and jugs.
  • Remove all lids, rings and caps.
