NOT RECYCLABLE: Trash/garbage/frozen food, plastic bags, containers with food remaining in it, plastics over a #2, coffee lids that are not clear in color, electronics/wiring and Styrofoam.  


We ask that you please recycle the right way at our locations. Breakdown all cardboard boxes and place recyclables in the correct trailer compartments. Please DO NOT place materials on the ground outside the trailer. At each of our locations the driver has to take the time to clean up the area, which puts them further behind schedule in getting the full trailers exchanged with empty ones.             


The importance of placing Uncontaminated and Recyclable Items Only in the recycling bins.

Placing items in the recycling bin that cannot be recycled can contaminate the recycling stream. After these unrecyclable items arrive at recycling centers, they can cause costly damage to the equipment. These items must be sorted out and the contaminated/unrecyclable items sent to the landfill. Our goal is not to send recyclable items to the landfill. This is why it is important to check with your local recycling provider to ensure that they will accept certain items before placing them into a bin.

  • Corrugated Cardboard: Has a wavy “corrugated” or fluted strip running through the center. It is most commonly found in boxes used for packaging and shipping items.
  • Mixed Waste Paper: Newspapers, magazines, catalogs, phonebooks, junk mail, cereal boxes or ‘slick’ cardboard, glossy paper, paper egg cartons, shredded paper, etc.
  • P.E.T.E #1 Plastics: Clear/transparent and light green plastic water bottles, soft drink bottles or sport drink bottles.
  • H.D.P.E. #2 Plastics: Clear or opaque plastic beverage containers, milk and juice jugs.
