Just Say NO to these 9 Items

The below items have never been recyclable through your curbside recycling program. Please do not place them in your recycling bin. For alternative options, you can visit for suggestions.

Carts Are Top Heavy

Just a friendly reminder that your waste and recycling carts are top heavy. Since we are currently experiencing 60 mph winds, your carts will blow over if they’re left outside empty or have little material in them. The best option to keep them from blowing over is to bring them inside as soon as they’re emptied (if possible).  Please bag your trash (NOT your recycling) to keep loose trash from blowing around your neighborhood.
