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, jars and jugs with a narrow neck (#1 & #2)
  • Steel, tin and aluminum cans
  • Flattened cardboard and paperboard
  • Newspaper, magazines, brown paper bags and non-shredded, non-confidential office paper

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