What do I put in the paper cart?
All recyclable paper and cardboard (flatten boxes to fit in cart), including:
  • Brown paper grocery bags
  • Catalogs
  • Junk mail (window envelopes are ok but remove product samples, plastic cards, etc.)
  • Magazines
  • Newspaper
  • No plastic bags or plastic wrap.
  • Paperback books
  • Paperboard such as cereal boxes and tissue boxes
  • Phone books
  • School and office paper
  • Shredded paper must be in a paper bag or small cardboard box

Plastic bags and wrap jam up our sorting equipment.
