CURBSIDE TRASH CAN BEST PRACTICES

All grass clippings should be bagged. Loose clippings don’t stay loose for long and end up being packed in the can which can be difficult to dump. Sometimes, depending on how long the grass has been in the can and the moisture content involved, it can stick like concrete in the bottom of a can. Bag all clippings and leaves. Also, it stinks if it’s not bagged!

Cardboard should be broken down and placed in the can vertically.Cardboard will stick to the inside of the can by shear pressure when it’s pushed down. Vertical cardboard comes out of the can more easily when dumped and is much less likely to slide out onto the street when being dumped. Truck manufactures have changed the mechanism on the trucks so that the drivers can’t slam the cans up and down (when they’re upside down) to make sure everything is out like they used to. It was too hard on the arms of the truck, too loud, and it was hard on the cans.

Please NO NOT put dirt, sod, or rocks into the cans.

ALL-IN-ONE RECYCLING
Acceptable items: 
Corrugated cardboard (break-down boxes), paper, aluminum and steel, plastics #1-7. Recycling must be clean (i.e., no residual food or liquid). Separate milk cartons from cap and ring, which are a different plastic type. 

Unacceptable items: GLASS, Styrofoam, food waste, green waste, textiles, hazardous waste, etc.

A note on glass recycling: Although glass is recyclable, it cannot be placed in your All-In-One Recycling bin. Your All-In-One Recycling is hand-sorted, meaning broken glass poses a danger to employees. For that reason glass is prohibited and must be taken to a glass-only, drop-off location.
