Food scraps like apple cores, eggshells or expired leftovers belong in your garbage can, not the recycling bin.
When you mistakenly toss food scraps into recycling, food residue and particles get soaked up by paper and can ruin large batches of otherwise good recyclables,
Clean your food containers before you recycle them.
You have to empty and rinse before you recycle. When you don’t, the residue from items like jars and take-out containers gets soaked up by paper and can ruin large batches of otherwise good recyclables.Please empty and rinse food containers before tossing them into your recyclables.
Clothing can't be recycled.
Old clothes, shoes, blankets and curtains don’t belong in recycling. They can get caught in sorting machines, damage equipment and cause workplace injuries at the recycling facility.Instead, donate items that are in good condition to not-for-profit facilities in your community. If your items can’t be donated, put them in the garbage.
Coffee cups go into the garbage.
Disposable paper coffee cups are lined with plastic or wax and, unfortunately, can’t be recycled at this time. So, please place coffee cups in the garbage, not your recycling. However, black plastic coffee lids (and black plastic of any kind) can be recycled and should go into the recycling bin.
