With the newer single-stream recycling, all items are collected in the same bin and thus can be stored in your home without separating. Empty and rinse all containers but do not flatten. Only cardboard boxes should be flattened. No need to remove container labels, paper clips, stamps, address labels, staples, tape, wire, metal fasteners, rubber bands, spiral bindings, plastic tabs. Envelopes are now accepted except for orange/brown envelopes (such as manila envelopes).
Items accepted
White or pastel office paper, file folders, egg cartons (no Styrofoam), paperboard boxes such as for cereal and crackers, paper bags, milk/juice cartons (no foil pouches), paperback books, phonebooks, magazines and catalogs, brochures, blueprints, newspapers and inserts (no bags), junk mail and greeting cards, corrugated cardboard and cardboard boxes (flatten).
#1-7 plastic bottles and jars (no caps) and tubs. No microwave trays. No compostable cups; these are usually made from corn but look like plastic.
Bottles and jars, all colors.
Clean, balled aluminum foil (2” or larger) and pie pans. (Put your aluminum cans in the boxes around town to benefit Habitat for Humanity or take them to the rehab center to benefit its operations.)
