[ARCHIVED] Know What to Throw! - Recycling Reminder

Changes in the recycling market have drastically impacted which items can and cannot be accepted. Unfortunately these changes are out of the Town’s control.

When unacceptable items are included in a recycling load, the entire load must be taken to the landfill; so, if you recycle responsibly but your neighbor does not, your recycling still ends up in the landfill. That’s why it’s important to know what to throw!

Acceptable Items

  • Fiber (Clean Paper)

    • Paper
    • Cardboard
    • Magazines
    • Newspaper
    • Books
    • Mail
  • Plastics #1-7

    • Water bottles
    • Soda bottles
    • Salad dressing bottles
    • Milk jugs
    • Laundry detergent jugs
    • Juice bottles
  • Aluminum/Steel Cans

    • Soda Cans
    • Beer Cans
    • Food Cans

  • Oil/grease containers
  • Hangers
