Recycling is provided at no additional charge to residents who receive the City's solid waste collection service. Initially, residents will receive two bins free of charge. Additional bins may be obtained at the Service & Engineering Department. Lids are no longer available for the bins. Residents should place lighter items such as paper, cardboard and plastic in the bottom of the bin, and heavier items such as glass bottles and metal cans on top to prevent blowing and littering. All recyclable materials may be placed in the same bin.
