Recycling

Details


Recycling is available to all residents who are eligible for municipal trash collection. Multi-unit apartment dwellings over 6 units, businesses, and trailer park units are not eligible for recycling pickup. For recycling information please see your building management.

We use single stream recycling-no separating paper, plastics, etc.. Recycling materials are collected every other week on Fridays on your trash collection day.  All recycling materials must fit in the 96-gallon automated cart provided to you.  View your collection week by visiting the recycling street list. Place recyclables at the curb before 7 a.m. on the morning of collection, and not before 6 p.m. on the evening prior to collection. Please see the video for placement of cart.
