FAQs

Do these items really get recycled?

Yes, absolutely. The materials are transported to a recycling center where they are separated via a very sophisticated sorting system, baled by commodity, and distributed to an end user who uses them to manufacture new products.

Why is recycling a good idea?

Recycling is good for many reasons. When we recycle, we are keeping these products out of our landfills; therefore, lessening the environmental impact and ensuring a cleaner, healthier tomorrow. Recycling allows for products to be manufactured with less raw
materials, like water and oil. When we can save these precious raw materials, we are not only manufacturing at a lower cost but we are preserving these valuable materials for a later or more important use down the road.

Isn’t recycling time consuming and difficult?

No, it’s actually quick and easy. Simply empty or spoon clean your recyclables, break down/smash your boxes, and throw all approved recycling items in your blue recycling bin. You don’t have to wash out or clean anything. It’s as simple as that! DO NOT bag or box your recycables, leave them loose and toss them in.

What if I need more room than one recycling can?

You can have more than one if you need it. Typically, an average household will only need one can if they breakdown their boxes and smash their jug-like items, making room for all household recyclables. But, if you need an extra can, you can order it through your city’s utility department.

Why can’t we recycle glass?

Glass is recyclable, just not in your All-in-One curbside recycling can.
Glass must be recycled only with other glass in special GLASS ONLY bins. Glass cannot go through the sorting facility used for this program.
