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 the first day of your regularly scheduled household garbage collection. So if you have Monday/Friday garbage days, your recycling day is Monday. If you have Tuesday/Thursday garbage days, your recycling day is Tuesday. However, residents in the Lake Placid area has a collection on Fridays. Here is the Recycle Collection Map (PDF) which shows recycling pickup days.
To prepare your items for recycling, please empty, rinse and remove lids from all containers.
