Recycling DOs and DONTs

Any items that either cannot fit in a curbside recycling bin or are overflow items must be placed in a clear bag. Those items cannot be accepted at the recycling center if it cannot be easily determined that they are proper recycling products. Bulk or overflow items not in a clear bag also will not be collected.
