What Can Be Recycled?

Keep it Short and Simple

Some people say they don't recycle because the rules are too confusing. Other people think that recycling is too much work. The truth is, recycling is as easy as trashing, but so much more responsible. That is why the City has shortened and simplified the guidelines for curbside recycling. Simply empty out the excess product from acceptable items and place them in the blue bin. Not sure what items are recyclable?
