City Waste Programs

Residential Curbside Recycling Program

Citizens are able to recycle glass, plastic, paper, tin and aluminum through the program. Recycling bins are emptied curbside once a week, depending on your scheduled garbage pickup day.

Guidelines for Curbside Recycling Program

  • Newspapers & Magazines: Place all newspapers & magazines in the recycling bin provided. Magazine and Newspaper slicks are acceptable. No books or envelopes may be recycled. Any paper that is wet, or has been wet will not be recycled, but thrown away.
  • Plastics: Rinse out all plastic bottles such as milk jugs and soda bottles. Other bottles with a #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, & #7 stamped on the bottle will also be collected. Please remove any caps or lids. Flatten the bottles as much as possible. No bottles still containing liquid will be accepted. Other plastics that are acceptable include margarine tubs, frozen meal containers, plastic buckets, etc. Rule of thumb: if the lid screws on, it is considered a bottle for recycling.
  • Cans: Rinsed aluminum and tin cans are acceptable. Flatten if possible. No aerosol cans, paint cans, foil, pie tins, or aluminum siding will be accepted.
  • Glass: Glass bottles and jars of all colors will be accepted. Drain completely and remove all caps and lids. Labels can remain on the bottles and jars. No light bulbs, drinking glasses, window glass, mirrors, auto glass, tempered glass, ceramics, or other nonfood or non-beverage containers are accepted.
    Office Paper: All office paper is acceptable including computer paper and printer paper. No file folders will be accepted. Any paper that is wet or has been wet will not be recycled, but thrown away.
