plastic bottles

If you must bag your recyclables, see through bags are required.

Any recyclables bagged in solid (non-see through) bags must be handled as trash.


Plastic bags are not accepted as part of curbside recycling programs – they get tangled in equipment and threaten worker safety.

Plastic bags can be recycled at most grocery stores.


Plastic wrap, bubble wrap, sandwich bags and freezer bags should not go in the recycle bin.

Reuse whenever possible for presents, moving, or storage of similar items, or look for local options to recycle.


Flexible packaging like chip bags and juice or soup pouches cannot be recycled in curbside programs.

This type of packaging is made from multiple materials preventing it from being recycled.


Cups with plastic or waxed coatings are not recyclable. The plastic lids should be trashed as well.

Invest in and carry a reusable cup instead.


Polystyrene foam, plastic “to-go” containers and cups are made of non-recyclable materials, and are not acceptable in the curbside recycling program.

Packing peanuts aren’t recyclable either, however some shipping stores will take peanuts back for reuse.
