General Preparation Guidelines for Single-Stream Recycling:

  • All recyclable materials should be mixed loose in the blue recycling cart, no sorting or separation of recycled materials is necessary
  • Absolutely NO PLASTIC BAGS
  • Absolutely NO TRASH; trash is to be placed into the Green Trash Cart
  • Cardboard and Paperboard should be flattened to conserve space inside the recycling cart
  • Food and Beverage containers should be rinsed clean, a thorough washing is NOT required
  • Keep the Blue Recycling Cart lid closed to keep the recyclable materials dry
  • Shredded paper should be secured in a brown paper grocery bag
