Tips

In order to be as efficient as possible please follow these tips:

  • Please do not throw any half filled cups, bottles, cans, or containers of any liquid waste or food waste into the recycle bins. Make sure the items you deposit are empty & dry. Any materials that have been contaminated by food wastes are not considered recyclable.
  • Close the lid on the recycle container once you have made your deposit.
  • Place cardboard in the containers marked for it, and not in the containers marked, "single stream".
  • Please break down cardboard boxes before depositing them into the "cardboard only" containers.
  • If your recycle container is full and you would like it emptied please call extension 5296, or submit a Facilities Work Request.
