Empty, Clean & Dry
Empty out liquids, scrape and rinse out food residue, make sure paper and cardboard are dry and keep your recycling bin closed to shut out rain.
No Plastic Bags
Don't bag your recycling - keep it loose. Plastic bags of any type should not go into the curbside or transfer station recycling bins. Find your nearest bag dropoff location at plasticfilmrecycling.org.
When in Doubt, Find Out or Throw It Out
