RECYCLE INFORMATION

  • Pick up your recycle bin at the Public Services Building at 100 Municipal Drive.  Step inside the door and take as many bins as you need.
  • Discard old bins by leaving them at your curb with a note to “TAKE BIN”
  • Recycle on WINDY DAYS - Please place recycle bin lid or heavier weight recyclable material on top of your recyclables to help keep recyclables in the bin.
  • Recycle on RAINY DAYS - Recyclables become contaminated (and must be thrown in the trash) if they get wet, so please use the recycle bin lid if rain is in the forecast.
