Recycling at Home Made Easy

Recycling Counts™! Here are some easy ways to get started with recycling at home.

  1. Use Recycling Bins. Make your recycling convenient by placing a recycling bin next to your trash can.
  2. Rinse before recycling. Give your plastic bottles a quick rinse before recycling to remove any leftover product. This helps prevent contamination to other recyclables.
  3. Keep the lid on. Many recycling centers recycle the caps from your plastic bottles, so replace the cap on the bottle when recycling. Check with your city government for details about recycling caps in your area.

Contact your city government to find out what is recyclable in your area, and what is not. You, too, can help make a difference in your community by participating in curbside recycling.
