Info & Tips:
- Recyclable materials are to be placed in a rigid plastic, metal or fiberglass container with handles and a capacity no greater than 35 gallons, weighing no more than 60 pounds when full.
- Recyclable materials are collected with your trash every other Tuesday or Thursday depending upon street location.
- Please do not put plastic bags in your recycling container.
- Items containing freon such as refrigerators, air conditioners, etc. need to be handled differently. A plumber needs to be contacted for removal of freon, and a special tag needs to be applied at which time the item may be placed curbside.
