Sort These TOP 5 Items Right!

We want all your waste disposal efforts to count.

Many residents are doing a great job of putting their waste in the right place.

We need your help to be sure that these 5 items – dishes, clothes, plastic toys, intravenous therapy (IV) tubes and bags, and diapers – end up in the right place.

Our recycling and organics processes are not set up to handle these items. When they end up in recycling or organics, we have to remove them and put them in landfill.

Items that are in good condition – like dishes, clothes and plastic toys – can be reused. It's easy. Donate them today – and get a savings coupon.
