Beginning on October 29th, there are new rules for our recycling program. Recyclable items that can be placed in your curbside containers include glass bottles and jars, aluminum and tin cans, and plastic containers with a recycling symbol. Please note, there are a few restrictions on acceptable plastics. Remember to rinse and dry these items thoroughly before placing them in your recycling cart, as food waste can render a load unrecyclable.
If you have doubts about an item, just throw it away - we'd rather a few potentially recyclable items end up in the trash than risk contaminating an entire load. We understand this is a big change from how our recycling program used to work, and we'll have crews inspecting recycling carts to help educate residents about what is and isn't recyclable.
