What items can I recycle?

All types of recycling may be mixed together and placed in a single container; no sorting is needed. Remember to Wash-n-Squash first! All items must fit into the bin with the lid closed. Items placed outside the bin will NOT be picked up.

  • Accepted recyclables include:
  • Plastic bottles and containers #1-5 and 7
  • Glass jars and bottles
  • Steel, tin and aluminum cans
  • Clean food cartons and containers
  • Flattened cardboard and paperboard
  • Newspaper, magazines, brown paper bags and office paper

Recycling is mandatory, according to the township code. Please do NOT bag your recyclables.
