We make recycling easy with different color cans for trash and recycling! Green lids are recycling, which please keep everything loose with no plastic bags or use paper bags to contain it! Blue lids are for trash, please bag all trash.
Single-stream recycling is a system in which all recyclables, including newspaper, cardboard, plastic, aluminum, junk mail, etc., are placed in a single bin or cart for recycling. These recyclables are collected by a single truck and taken to a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) to be sorted into various commodity streams for sale to markets, where it is processed into feedstock which can be used in the manufacture of new products.We get many questions about plastic bags, please do not place them in your recycling bins. While yes, they are recyclable, they can not be placed in stream recycling. Clean plastic bags can be placed in grocery stores where there is a recycle bin for only plastic bags. Plastic bags can jam up the sorting process in recycling locations causing huge problems.
