Recyclables should also be placed curbside, or in an area that has been cleared near the street, curb, or driveway, by 7:00 am on your scheduled pickup day. Recyclables should be placed in a container that can be easily dumped, i.e. a laundry basket, crate, or any container that is not or doesn’t resemble a trashcan or garbage pail. Try to avoid white containers, as they are hard to see in the snow. Recyclables should be set out for collection on a weekly basis.
