IN THE MEANTIME…Here are some Recycling Tips from our friends at Republic Services:

Earth Day is April 22nd!  Time to brush up on your recycling IQ!  When recycling, always remember these universal rules:

  • Know what to throw:Plastic bottles, jugs, aluminum, tin cans, paper, and empty cardboard boxes are recyclable.
  • Empty, clean, and dry:Ensure containers are free of food or other residues. Please rinse and dry items before putting them in the recycling. Remember to remove plastic packaging and flatten cardboard boxes.
  • Don’t bag it. Put your recyclables loosely into your recycling container.  The material in tall kitchen garbage bags or clear liners is unacceptable because the flexible packaging gets caught in the machinery.
  • Nothing smaller than a credit card.Do not put items smaller than a credit card in the recycling.  Remember to keep the caps on bottles and jugs and remove corks from your wine bottles.
