What kind of garbage is collected?
Most garbage or solid waste from day-to-day life is collected on garbage day. This will include regular household refuse, table/stove trash (like food to be thrown out) and used paper products from the kitchen and bathroom.
What can be recycled?
Any kind of paper that has not touched food can be recycled, like newspaper, cardboard, magazines and printer/copier paper. No. 1 and 2 plastic bottles without caps are recyclable, as well as aluminum and tin cans that are rinsed out. Please remove lids from tin cans.
Bundles of rubbish, bulky or yard waste must not exceed 60 pounds and those bundles must be placed curbside that are clear of overhead obstructions. Acceptable items include residential yard waste like grass clippings, tree/shrub trimmings and small tree branches that are small than 8 inches in diameter.
Is motor oil recyclable?
If you are a home-based mechanic, you probably have some jugs of used motor oil taking up space somewhere. Under no circumstances should it be dumped in storm drains or in the woods. Motor oil can be highly toxic to people, plants and animals, and it must be disposed of properly. You can take used motor oil to these local businesses:
