Glass fragments in the blue cart degrade paper and other materials that go into making recycled items. Please place glass in a separate container at the curb. Plastic bags and plastic wrap may be taken to local grocery stores that accept bags for recycling, but are not accepted in the curbside collection program.

Help a neighbor and the environment too:
Combine loads when you go

Heading to the transfer station with recycling or household hazardous waste? Good job!  That is a great way to help the environment; but it could even be better if you saved someone else a trip. Check with your neighbors (especially those who may be elderly or have a disability) to see if they also have some recycling or household hazardous waste that you could take. For information about recycling at the County’s transfer stations visit Transfer Station Recycling and for information about FREE household hazardous waste disposal visit Household Hazardous Waste.
