What other products can I recycle in the single stream program?
Under single stream recycling, residents will be able to recycle paper board (e.g. cereal boxes, 6-pack containers and shoe boxes); cartons (e.g. 1/2 gallon milk jugs and juice cartons); plastics #1-#7; aluminum foil and aluminum take out containers. While we’ve added new plastic items, there are some products that are still not recyclable. These products include, Styrofoam®, plastic bags, shrink wrap and plastic film and any other plastics that are not listed in the City’s recycling guidelines
