What materials are allowed in the 96 gallon recycling carts?

Please click Recycle Often. Recycle Right to view what materials are allowed in the recycle cart as well as what materials are not allowed in the recycle carts. Acceptable recyclables must be placed in the cart loosely. Do not place plastic bags of recyclables in your recycling cart.

The driver will reject your recycling cart at the curb, if any type of plastic bags are in the recycle cart.
