Recycling

Simply place all your recyclable items loosely together (Please do not bag these items) in your designated recycling cart. 

The following items are non-acceptable curb-side recyclable materials:
  • Plastic Bags
  • Pizza boxes and egg cartons

Proper Cart Placement
  • Have your cart(s) at the curb the night before your scheduled pick-up day.
  • Face the lid opening toward the street - handle toward the house.
  • Leave 3 feet between each cart or place the cart(s) on each side of your driveway.
  • During winter months, please keep your cart(s) clean of snow or other obstructions and place them at the end of the driveway or boulevard so snow trucks won't run into them.
