Each site has a large bins for commingled cardboard/paper; tin, glasss (clear and colored) and plastic (#1 thru #7 accepted). PLEASE CLEAN AND FLATTEN YOUR MATERIALS before placing them in the bins. 

The bins are emptied throughout the week on an as-needed basis. The bins may fill up occasionally before we have the opportunity to empty them, especially on the weekends. To avoid this situation, try to do your recycling during the week when the sites aren't as busy. DO NOT LEAVE MATERIALS ON THE GROUND.
