Recycling collection occurs bi-weekly. Schedules and route maps are available here.
Have materials at the curbside by 7:30 am.
Ensure materials are placed in a clearly visible location at the curb.
Place items loosely and neatly in bin, no bags.
All cardboard/boxboard must be flattened. Flatten and bundle large corrugated boxes. No items larger than 8” thick, 30” wide and 30” tall.
Make sure recyclables have been cleaned.
Ensure bin is only full of acceptable materials and not placed in plastic bags, or it will be left at curbside, tagged as contaminated and rejected.
