What Goes in My Blue Bin

You may be surprised, but not everything that seems recyclable, is! For instance, any black plastics are not recyclable, and should go in the garbage. Most hot beverage cups are not recyclable either as they are lined with plastic or wax. Please avoid throwing away clothing and textiles. Donate them instead! Also, please empty and rinse containers with leftover food before placing them into the Blue Bin.

Please be kind to our environment and dispose of your waste responsibly!
