Here are the basic recycling guidelines for curbside programs in SWANCC communities.  Check with your village or city for updates.

 


 

 

To prepare your items for recycling:

  • Empty and rinse bottles, cans and containers to remove food or beverage residue
  • Place only approved items in the cart.
  • Do not “bag” recyclables – put them in the outside cart loose.
  • Put caps back on plastic bottles and jugs – DO NOT crush!
  • Flatten boxes and place inside your cart.
  • Remove wax bags from food boxes (such as cereal or cracker boxes).
  • Labels can remain on jars/bottles and plastic windows on envelopes.
  • Keep the lid on your recycling cart closed at all times to keep materials dry.

There are four very important words to remember:  Empty – Clean – Loose – Dry!
