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.
All recyclables must be clean: No food or liquid residue!
Rinse/dry/remove lids from all plastic bottles and containers
Please separate the #2 plastic bags, #2 plastic bottles, #1 plastic bottles, #4 plastic bags, plastic containers and plastic lids.
We will take #6 and #7 plastics, but small quantities!
