Don’t forget that Styrofoam containers and black plastic, such as takeout trays and coffee cup lids, are no longer accepted in recycling bins and are now garbage as of this past Spring, 2019. To help remind residents, staff will begin “tagging” recycling bins that contain garbage with a green “Oops” sticker.
Leaf and yard waste, including grass clippings, are no longer accepted in green bins — please use a brown paper yard waste bag or an open top rigid reusable container marked with a yard waste sticker (included in each Recycling & Waste Calendar). Yard waste stickers cannot be placed on green bins or blue boxes. Green bins should only be used for food scraps and soiled paper products like napkins and pizza boxes.
