Recycling Done Right!
Plastic bags, plastic wrap, and glass are a problem when put in the blue recycling cart and we need your help. Because you put a lot of effort in recycling, we want to help you do it right!
Every type of plastic bag and plastic wrap (for example, the plastic wrap from paper towels or shrink wrap from other products) clogs machinery at the local recycling facility, causing unnecessary down time and a safety risk to the workers who remove it by hand. Glass fragments in the blue cart degrade paper and other materials that go into making recycled items. Please place glass in a separate container at the curb. Plastic bags and plastic wrap may be taken to local grocery stores that accept bags for recycling, but are not accepted in the curbside collection program.
