What items can go in my new cart?
We accept the following items:
• Plastic bottles, jugs and containers (numbers 1 – 7)
• Paper (mixed paper, cardboard, newspaper, junk mail)
• Aseptic containers (milk/juice cartons, drink boxes)
• Aluminum and metal cans
You can also recycle scrap metal, appliances and tires at the curb by placing them outside your recycling container.
IMPORTANT! Be sure to rinse out all food and beverage containers before putting them in your cart. This prevents your recyclables from smelling or attracting rodents and insects, and also helps maintain the value of the recyclable material.
Putting any trash, food or yard waste in your cart will contaminate the whole load.
