Home Recycling Guidelines

The Center is asked every week, “What is the best way to recycle at home?”

Here is a list of best practices for recycling at home.

Collecting at Home:

  • Mixed paper: Sort all mixed paper into one container. This includes newspaper, junk mail, paper towel rolls, cereal boxes, magazines, paper packaging, wrapping paper, etc. (Keep shredded paper bagged separately)
  • Mixed containers: Sort any type of plastic, or metal containers together. Examples include plastic soda bottles, water bottles, milk jugs, butter dishes, laundry soap bottles, product “blister” packaging, vegetable cans, aluminum cans, etc. (Clean aluminum foil and pie tins can also be included.)
  • Plastic film: Bag plastic film and bags separately. This includes any type of plastic grocery bag, wrapping film, packaging bags, trash bags, Ziploc bags, etc. (please nothing but plastic film. No paper.)

Bringing recyclables to the Center

  • Mixed paper: Put paper into the tilt hoppers labeled for mixed paper. If the paper is in plastic bags, please dump the paper out and put the plastic bag in the container next to the hopper Place bags of shredded paper in the cage labeled for shredded paper.

  • Mixed Containers: Put bags of mixed containers into the cages labeled “Mixed Containers”. Loose recyclables can be dumped Into the cages instead of bagging. Please do not put paper or plastic film in the cage.

  • Mixed Bags and Film: Put bags of film in the cage labeled for “mixed film”.

  • Cardboard: Corrugated cardboard is put into the cage for cardboard boxes. Please do not put paper or paperboard boxes such as cereal boxes and detergent boxes. These types of boxes can be included with the mixed paper.
