The list of items welcome in your recycling bin just got longer! Here are a few of the biggest changes:
- Large plastic items – laundry baskets, lawn chairs, buckets and storage containers can now be put directly in your recycling bin.
- Plastic caps on empty bottles – if they are attached to the empty bottle, caps can go into the recycling, but if they’re loose they go in the garbage.
- Cooking Oil – Pour cooled used oil into a plastic jug with a tight fitting, screw-on lid. Then label it with your name and address (so the City can track the 2 gallon per household limit) and set it next to your bin.
