Recycling

Services

It’s easy to recycle with the new no-sort system called "single-stream recycling." All recycling items can be placed in the same container.

Recycling service is provided once a week. Recycling items will be collected on one of your regularly scheduled household garbage collection days.  Here is the Recycle Collection Map (PDF) which shows recycling pickup days.

Prepare

To prepare your items for recycling, please empty, rinse and remove lids from all containers.
