How To Prepare Recyclables

Check weather forecast: If the forecast calls for high winds or rain, keep your recyclables inside until the following pickup if possible.

Remove all packaging (Styrofoam, peanuts, plastic, bubble wrap, plastic liners, etc.)

Cover loose paper with heavier containers to prevent it from blowing away.

Do not place plastic bags your recycle bin: Always place your recyclables directly in your recycling container.

Battery Disposal

Incorrect Battery Disposal Can Cause Fires

Common household items seem harmless, however, the batteries in them pose risks when disposed into regular garbage or recycling containers because of their highly flammable nature.

  • Remove the batteries

    Check the electronic devices you need to dispose of. If possible, remove the batteries. If not, bring the whole device to the drop off location.
  • Store batteries in a safe place

    Store batteries in non-metallic containers (plastic, cardboard, or glass) that do not conduct electricity if there is a spark.
  • Find your local drop off

    Find a local electronic disposal store, or find a drop off location near you.
