Please be a considerate recycler. Leaving unacceptable items at drop-off locations is considered illegal dumping. Place acceptable items loose - not bagged - in the recycling containers.
We try to keep this information updated. However, it is always a good idea to first call the establishment in which you would like to take your recyclables, as their policy often changes.
