Curbside Recycling Bin Collection

General Information & Tips


  • Please place your recycling bin at the curb the night before your collection day as the collection occurs early.
  • Place your recycling bin within 5 to 6 feet of the roadway, and at least 3 feet from your trash cart, placing it in a highly visible location.
  • Please do not place needles, tobacco products, diapers, broken glass, or other trash in with your recyclable materials.
  • Please remove all liquid, food residue, and plastic linings from containers.
  • Labels do not have to be removed from recyclables.
  • Please stack newspapers on top of mixed papers for easy sorting by our drivers. Newspaper and mixed paper may be separated in a reusable bag available at the Recycling and Trash Collection Division or place in a second bin for paper and paperboard.
  • Please flatten paperboard and cardboard, and place large flattened cardboard under your bin to prevent the wind from blowing it around your neighborhood.
  • During inclement weather, please place your paper and paperboard recycling in a bin with the lid securely fastened to keep material dry.
  • Remember, you are allowed two free recycling bins!
