ALUMINUM

  • Canned food (Rinse)

  • Aluminum drink cans (Rinse)

  • Pet food cans (Rinse)

  • Clean pie/baking pans

  • Aluminum foil without food debris

  • Rinse EVERYTHING! YES! Even your empty drink cans! There should be as little food and drink debris as possible.

GLASS

  • All colors of glass are accepted

  • Remove any lids/stoppers from bottles and jars

  • NO loose broken glass!

PLASTICS

  • Plastics #1-7 (the number inside of the chasing arrows symbol for recycle)

  • Remove label from bottles

  • Rinse all drink and food from plastics

  • NO lids (these are a harder plastic and not recyclable)

  • NO to-go containers

  • NO PLASTIC BAGS/GARBAGE BAGS/GROCERY BAGS!

  • Throw away or up-cycle plastic bottle caps. The small ring from the seal on cap is okay! Don't worry about removing it!

  • The lids on drink bottles have a much higher melting point and cannot be accepted. They can also pose a danger when a sealed bottle is compressed...it becomes a dangerous projectile!
