All About Recycling
Recyclables are best if placed in a box, as we do not recycle plastic bags or garbage bags. Plastic bags can usually be taken back to the store and disposed of in their recycling containers. For example, Lowe’s (registered trademark) and Walmart (registered trademark) have recycling bins for some items. Please use the recycling container properly and placing items that are not allowed into the bins is classified as Illegal dumping; please help us by ensuring that you only place what is listed on the side.
See the table below for what items can be recycled, how to prepare them, and the items we cannot accept. If you have any questions, please contact us using the form on our contact page. Thank you.

All recyclables must be cleaned and lids removed! If your recyclables won't fit in the large recycling containers, please bring them to the recycling center.
Please bundle all newspaper and cardboard separately for processing. Plastic bottles must have the recycling symbol #1 or #2 on the bottom. Plastic bags can only be white, yellow, blue or grey.
Any separation of recyclables you can do would be greatly appreciated but is not required for acceptance. We do not accept anything that is not listed in our acceptable materials table.
