Your recycling day is the same as your garbage collection day. Recyclable items must be placed at the curb by 7 a.m., and removed from the curb by 9 p.m. on your collection day. Place the recycle bins at least four feet from the garbage cart to prevent interference & spillage.

Order a recycle bin
Bulk items such as furniture, do it yourself inside construction and other inside items too large for your garbage cart are automatically picked up - there is no need to call in to schedule them.
All recycling must be empty and clean. No Styrofoam, plastic bags or film allowed.
Aluminum and steel cans
Including aerosol and aluminum bottles
Glass bottles and jars
No drinking glasses, dishes, or other ceramics. No broken glass or mirrors.
Milk/Juice cartons and boxes
Mixed Paper Newspaper, magazines, catalogs, telephone books, manuals, paperback books, paper bags, office paper, junk mail, and packing
These paper products should be placed in the orange bin with the blue bin placed on top for protection from rain or wind. Shredded paper must be placed in a paper bag to prevent litter.
No shipping envelopes with plastic packaging
Corrugated cardboard (shipping boxes) and paperboard
Flatten boxes and place them in or under your orange recycling container. Place blue bin on top of orange bin to help keep paper dry on rainy days. If boxes are larger than 4 ft x 4 ft, cut them down to size. Clean pizza boxes with no food contamination are OK (some oil residue is acceptable but no food contamination).
No food contaminated boxes (i.e. pizza, cake, or donut boxes) as the food will contaminate the clean cardboard and pasteboard.
Remove shipping plastic and Styrofoam.
