Where to Recycle

- Single stream curbside collection of household recyclables is on alternate weeks. Just put your filled recycling bin out next to your regular household rubbish by 7 a.m. Recyclables and trash will be collected by separate trucks. (Note: If you've accidentally discarded something that cannot be recycled, we'll leave it in your bin with a note to let you know why it is not recyclable.) Do NOT bag your recycling in plastic bags!
