It is simple. Recycling means using again. Beginning with a simple lifestyle change, you can make a difference by tossing your recyclables into a different container.
It is easy and aids in preserving the environment.
Not everything can be recycled. Items such as oily rags, paper mixed with food residue, disposable diapers, aerosol cans and many plastics are not likely to find a buyer. These items will contaminate recyclable goods.
Separate reusable materials-such as glass bottles, aluminum cans, tin cans and plastics from ordinary refuse. You then place materials in special containers or bag them and place them at your curb for collection and processing.
Leaves are picked up the day after your regular garbage day from November 7 to December 5, 2011. Leaves should be placed on the curb in open bags. There is a 20 bag limit and nothing else can be mixed with them. For grass clippings the City follows a policy of Clip and Leave, which means when you cut your grass, you leave it to be absorbed back into the soil.
