Paper

(Last Updated: 8/23/2018)

Recycle mail, junk mail, envelopes, catalogs, magazines, newspaper, office paper, lined paper, colored paper, paper bags, packaging boxes, milk and juice cartons, and soft cover books.
 
Do not put shredded paper into the recycling bin. See shredded paper information.

Recycle
Keep paper flat, dry, and clean. Envelope windows and staples are OK. Remove plastic bags or liners and plastic or metal spiral binding before recycling. Do not bag recyclables. Recyclables should be loose (not bagged).
 
Put dirty or wet paper in the garbage. If you have curbside Food & Yard Waste service, food-soiled uncoated (not shiny) paper, tissue paper and facial tissue can go into your Food & Yard Waste cart.

Reuse

Disposal
Receipts, padded bubble mailers, plastic bags, and spiral bindings cannot be recycled. Put these in the garbage.
