When do I put out my recycling barrel?
Recycling is collected every other week on the same day as your garbage collection, but by a separate truck. Please refer to the flyer that was delivered with your new blue barrel for your assigned collection week {A or B}. Routes start early so you should have your barrel out by 6:00 am on the day of collection for your location. Most people seem to put them out the night before.

Where do I place the recycling barrel?
Please place the recycling barrel near the street within 2 feet of the curb and at least 3 feet from your trash barrel. This is because the truck’s lifting mechanism needs to wrap around the barrel to grab it.

Why was garbage collected, but not recycling?
Recycling is collected on the same day as your regular weekly garbage collection, but by a separate truck and at a different time. It may be that the recycling truck just hasn’t come yet. Also, it may not be your week for collection. Please refer to the flyer delivered with your new blue barrel for recycling for your assigned week.

How do I sort my Recycling?
All recycling items can now be mixed together in the recycling barrel. Sorting of items is no longer needed. This is because of the extremely efficient single-stream recycling system now in place in which items are mechanically sorted at an advanced processing center. However, please attempt to place items in the barrel in a secure manner with the lid closed to keep items from blowing away in wind. We suggest you place a heavy item in the bottom of the barrel like newspaper
to ensure the barrel empties completely.
