How to recycle


As important as recycling is, it is also important to recycle correctly. Doing so maximizes the chance everything will be fully recycled and not be rejected during sorting and processing. 

A FEW HELPFUL TIPS:

We currently do not accept #3, #5, or #7 plastics. This includes butter & yogurt tubs, plastic lids, straws, hangers, etc.

No food waste and make sure your recyclables are as clean as possible. Please remove lids.

Please no pizza boxes, dirty napkins, or other paper products contaminated by food waste.

Break down all cardboard boxes and make sure all bags are securely tied.

Please bag paper separately to avoid contamination by water or other liquids.

Everything is sorted by hand, so please no broken glass or sharp objects.

Everything except large cardboard must be in a securely tied bagged.

Clean and reusable textiles only, these will be donated.

For large quantities of glass, please bag separately.

Remember, your recycling should never smell!

 

Please be mindful when recycling. When in doubt, please throw away the item. 

 

We accept - Glass, Plastics #1 & 2, Aluminum, Tin & Metal, Cardboard, Paper, Styrofoam

&

Shredded Paper, Textiles,  and Toner & Ink Cartridges.
