The Garbage Man is happy to pick up the following materials for recycling:
- Papers - This category includes newspapers, phone books, magazines, light cardboards such as cereal boxes, corrugated cardboards*, paper plates/cups/napkins, etc.
- Plastics - The Garbage Man takes plastics from number 1 - 7. How do I know a plastic's number?
- Cans - Includes aluminum soda/pop cans, as well as metal soup/vegetable cans. Remember, anything that has contained anything other than water must be thoroughly rinsed out.
- Glass - Don't throw out old glass jars and bottles - recycle them!
*Cardboard needs to be broken down and bundled (with either duct tape, twine, string, etc). Bundles need to be under 4 feet in length and about 1 foot in diameter. We will pick up 5 bundles at a time.
WET RECYCLING is considered TRASH.
Recycling in BLACK trash bags is TRASH.
Recycling that has been contaminated by trash is trash.
The Garbage Man unfortunately cannot recycle Styrofoam or Porcelain.
