In stormy weather, stack papers on the bottom of the bin. Place bins at the curb, or no further than 6 ft. from the street, so they can be easily seen by your collector.
Please no plastic bags, bulbs or ceramics in your recycling bin.
Only use recycling bins for recyclables. If there are other types of trash or garbage in your bins, we may have to leave them behind.
