In general, you can recycle paper, cardboard, metal cans and plastics #1 through 7. This includes:
- Mixed paper – e.g. office paper, junk mail, envelopes and flyers
- Telephone books
- Corrugated cardboard
- Boxboard – e.g. cereal boxes, shoe boxes and tissue boxes
- Number 1 to 7 plastic containers and lids – e.g. yogurt cups, detergent containers, food platter trays, and plant pots
- Metal cans
Unacceptable items: Glass bottles and jars will not be accepted in the Blue Cart. Through the new collection system, glass is broken into small pieces that cannot be recovered at the sorting facility. Instead, recycle glass bottles and jars at a community recycling depot.
