Door hangers will help you know what to recycle
When you enter your room this fall there will be a door hanger on your door. It will tell you what can and can't be recycled and give you some examples. Hang it on your closet door handle or on the handle on the back of the door as a hand reference for what to recycle. Labels on the recycling bins also will help you figure out what you can and cannot recycle.
Single Stream Recycling
Single stream recycling means you can mix metal, aluminum, glass, paper, and plastics (#1-7 look for the triangle with a number in it on the container) can all go into the bin in any slot. No sorting makes it easier to recycle.
Lids/caps can be recycled, rinse and crush the bottle then replace the cap and put it into the recycling bin.
Corrugated cardboard needs to be taken to the cardboard recycling station in the basement.
