What can be recycled in the curbside carts?

The PAYT recycling carts are single-stream, so you don't need to separate your recycling. You'll also leave your recycling items unbagged. Like your trash cart, you'll always want to be able to close the lid (no cardboard stacked next to your cart).

What items you CAN recycle curbside:

  • Newspapers (including inserts)
  • Mixed paper
  • Phone books
  • Steel or tin cans (rinsed)
  • Plastic milk jug
  • Corrugated cardboard (flattened)
  • Chipboard (cereal and tissue boxes)
  • Plastic #1-6 (if not labeled, do not recycle)
  • Pie tins
  • Magazines
  • Office paper
  • Brown paper bags
  • Aluminum cans (do not crush)
  • Glass bottles and jars (rinsed)
  • Detergent bottles
  • Bulk or junk mail
  • Plastic Clam shells #1-6 (No PLA)
