Single Stream Recycling

Single stream recycling allows all recyclables including paper, cardboard, cans and bottles to be mixed together for collection, either in a cart or bin. It does not mean trash materials are mixed with your recyclables, only that paper and container recyclables may be mixed together.

No Separation
It makes recycling easy. No separation increases the ease and convenience of recycling, so that more people participate and more resources are saved. It can also make collection easier and more efficient as all recyclables can be mixed in a single compartment in the truck.

Plastic Bags
Plastic bags, whether blue, clear or any other color, will not be accepted as of January 2010. In addition, plastic bags should not be used at any time with single stream recycling.

Keep It Clean
It is still important to rinse your cans/bottles to remove food and liquid. This is especially important with single stream, where paper and container recyclables share your recycling bin or cart.
