Collection Guidelines


Materials need to be curbside by 7 a.m. If they are not, we cannot go back to collect them if they were initially missed due to late set out. Please be sure to leave 4 feet of clearance on each side of your cart(s).

The following materials can be placed in your cart:
  • Aluminum cans
  • Beverage cases
  • Cardboard boxes (can also be taken to the Recycle Center during operational hours)
  • Cereal boxes
  • Computer paper
  • Copy paper
  • Empty aerosol cans
  • Glass bottles or jars
  • Junk mail
  • Magazines
  • Newspapers
  • Phone books
  • Plastic bottles or containers that #1 - #7
  • Steel cans
  • Tin cans
Items can be co-mingled and do not have to be separated. Containers should be empty and rinsed with lids placed back on afterwards.

Extra Recycling that won't fit in your cart? If you periodically have extra recycling for collection, the contractor will pick it up for free on your next collection day. Please place it in CLEAR, PLASTIC (kitchen size) bags. If you have extra recycling for every collection, the contractor will request that you get a second recycle cart. This can be done by contacting Pellitteri at 608-257-4285.
