Drop-Off Recycling

How to Recycle at Drop-Off Recycling Centers

In an effort to keep materials clean and ready for recycling, please prepare your recyclables before heading to the nearest recycling center. Please do not throw plastic bags into the bin.

NO TRASH PLEASE!

Accepted Materials:

Aluminum Beverage Containers:

Rinse containers and flatten to reduce size.

Cardboard:

Keep dry and clean. Please break cardboard boxes down to be as flat as possible. Do not mix with junk mail, magazines, newspaper, plastic bags or twine.

Glass:

Rinse containers and remove lids. Separate by color (clear, brown, or blue/green). Tinted glass should be placed into the blue/green glass container.

Newspaper:

Keep dry and clean. Do not mix with junk mail, magazines, cardboard, brown paper bags, plastic bags or twine.

Steel Cans:

Rinse containers, remove labels and, if possible, flatten to reduce size.

Magazines and Junk Mail:

are also accepted at many of the Community Drop-off Recycling Centers. Do not recycle any junk mail with personal information unless shredded.

Plastics:

Look on the bottom of the plastic container for a number inside a triangle. This number tells what  kind of plastic the container is made of. #1 - 7 plastic containers are recyclable. Rinse out containers. Sort containers by plastics number. Flatten containers as much as possible and remove lids. Deposit the clean container into the correct drop-off compartment. Containers which once stored motor oil are not acceptable for recycling.
