RECYCLING GUIDELINES

When you sign up for new service, your 18-gallon bin will be delivered to your address. Unless indicated otherwise, you will need to place your bin at the curb on the day of your pick-up.

It is important that you have your bin to the curb no later than 8:00 a.m. on the day of your pick-up.  To keep our routes optimized, we must periodically change the order in which we visit homes.  As a result, we may arrive earlier or later in the day that we have in the previous weeks.

Recycling Bins

Residential customers need TWO containers 

In order to properly sort your recycling you need TWO containers. All new customers will receive one (1) Earth Resources bins to use for as long as they have the service. The bin provided looks like this:

BinDimensions

The second container does not have to be one of our bins; however, additional Earth Resources bins are available to rent if desired.

(A rental fee of $18.00 will be assessed for each additional bin)

     Other bins are welcome!

If you do not wish to rent a second bin from us and choose to use your own container, please make sure they meet the following requirements:

  • Similar in size to the bin we provided (no large rolling carts, please!)
  • Total weight of bin (including material) should be less than 45 pounds; and
  • Does not collect rainwater, leaves, garbage, etc.

Prepare & Sort

Keep the process efficient, effective, and affordable!

  • Drain and rinse all of your containers
  • Remove any lids and caps
  • Flatten and stack cardboard together (not necessary to put it in a bin but please remember to weigh it down on windy days)
  • No recycling in plastic bags or garbage bags, please! (A bag of plastic grocery bags is OK!)
  • Please use your 2 containers to sort your recycling into 2 groups (1 bin for each group):
    • Group 1 – Cardboard/Paper (see link to complete list below)
    • Group 2 – Plastic, Glass, Aluminum, & Steel
  • If more than 2 bins are necessary, please sort the materials separately
  • Please make sure your bins on the curb by 8:00 a.m. the morning of pick-up
