Single Stream Recycling

 

SINGLE STREAM CURBSIDE RECYCLING

Single stream recycling means you no longer will be separating your recyclables. Although you must still bag your paper items (such as junk mail, newspapers, magazines, telephone books and chipboard, which includes empty cake boxes, cracker boxes, cereal boxes, snack boxes, and shoe boxes), you can commingle all recycling in one container. There will be no limit to the amount of recyclables you can set out for disposal. If more than one container is needed, you may use a 30 gallon plastic container clearly labeled “Recycling”. Please see the list below for recyclable items.
