Below is a guide on how to successfully recycling with the new Single-Stream method. A few common recyclables that people confuse are glass, Styrofoam and Bubble-wrap. We do accept glass, but not Styrofoam or Bubble-wrap. We also do not accept yard debris, construction debris, metal, trash or food. If any non-recyclable items are placed into your cart, it will not be picked up until they are taken out. We are excited to be expanding our curbside services to Aurora and Suffield Township and will help you adjust to the change in any way we can!
