Drop-off Instructions for Facilities offering FREE Recycling
Recycling as easy as 1-2-3 at the Materials Recovery Center (MRC) site temporarily closed effective March 18, 2020
Now, you can sort household recyclables brought to the MRC into just three groups: containers, mixed paper and corrugated cardboard.
- Container recycling includes jars, bottles and cans made from glass, plastic and metal. This includes plastic bottles tubs, jugs, jars and lids; glass bottles & jars (any color), and metal food & beverage cans. These can all be mixed together—no additional sorting is required!
- Mixed paper includes newspapers, cereal boxes, soda cases, office paper, junk mail, etc. This paper can all be mixed and recycled together.
- Corrugated cardboard (boxes and packaging with a ripple between two smooth layers) is the third sorting category. Look for recycling bins for cardboard in several convenient locations at the MRC.
This 3-sort system will help you spend less time sorting materials at home, save space for recycling bins and help make your recycling drop-off easier and faster! If your recycling is picked up at your curb, check with your hauler about current sorting guidelines. Learn about other services offered at the MRC.
