Plastic Recyclable FAQs
We resumed plastic collection. We will only be taking plastic Thursday from 9AM-4PM. If you cannot make it that day, please call and make an appointment. Please see below for details.
What We Collect
#1 (PETE) and #2 (HDPE) are the most common types of recycled plastic. Look for the triangle with a number stamped on the bottom of any bottle, container, or bag to determine the type of plastic.
#1 and #2 Plastic
We now accept #1 and #2 plastic. This includes plastic bags, bubble wrap, #1 and #2 plastic bottles and containers, and miscellaneous bottle caps.
Please separate the #1 plastic from the #2 plastic.
Follow the LECD Method (Loose, Empty Clean, Dry)
All recyclables must be clean: No food or liquid residue!
Rinse/dry/remove lids from all plastic bottles and containers.
