Residential Recycle Services

With your participation in the curbside recycling program, you are helping the environment. Manufacturers use the materials you collect to create new products.

Residential Service Guidelines

Help us to help you! Follow these simple guidelines to curbside service and we’ll be better able to serve you.

  • All garbage should be bagged before being placed in your cart or can.
  • Place recyclables loose in your cart. Do not place them in plastic bags.
  • Rocks, dirt, sod, loose ashes, combustible material, and liquid waste are NOT accepted in any cart or can.
  • Place all items at the curb by 6:30 a.m. Drivers can come at any time between 6:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. So if you don’t see your driver at the usual time, don’t worry! Their schedule may have changed due to weather, traffic, construction or other route delays.
  • There should be nothing obstructing your carts or cans. For cart service, our truck’s mechanical arm needs space to operate.
    • Leave 3 feet between carts.
    • Place carts 5 feet away from obstacles like trees, cars, mailboxes and basketball hoops.
  • For carts, make sure to face the cart handle toward your home. If the carts are facing the wrong direction, materials may fall onto the ground.
  • Make sure that the can/cart lid is completely shut and that the waste is level across the top of the container. Charges may apply for overfilled containers.
  • You may be charged a fee if your can or cart is heavier than the maximum weight limit.

Used motor oil and antifreeze can be recycled at the curb if you have curbside recycling service (not available at multifamily properties).

  • Use empty one-gallon plastic jugs that have a screw-top lid. Most grocery stores sell one-gallon water jugs for $1-2.
  • Use separate containers for oil and antifreeze, do not mix them.
  • Place jug(s) next to your recycling cart. Use a location where the jugs won’t be hit by vehicles.
