Non-Compliant Items

Recycling that does not meet the above criteria will be tagged as non-compliant. If the resident makes recycle items conform, it will be collected at the next regularly scheduled pick-up. However, you may not leave your container at the curb until the next pick-up date.  To ensure pickup, all recyclable materials must be inside the recycling container.  Materials outside the recycling container are not guaranteed to be picked up.
