Preparation:

Recyclables need to be relatively clean, dry, and empty. Lightly rinse the recycling container, if necessary, to remove food particles. Please be conscientious of your water use while rinsing the containers. Remove non-recyclable material from the recyclable item (such as plastic cereal inserts). Plastic and metal caps and labels do not need to be removed from the recyclable items.

Separation:

You do not need to sort or separate your recyclables from one another. This is a single-stream recycling program, meaning that all recyclable items are placed into the bin together (e.g. boxes can be mixed with plastic, paper mixed with aluminum cans, etc.).

Containment

Do not place recyclables in plastic bags as they contaminate the recycling load. Recyclables should be uncontained when placed into the recycling container.
