The gray-lidded cart is for recyclables, the green-lidded cart is for green waste, and the blue-lidded cart is for trash - household waste that cannot be recycled. Generally, only items that are placed in the carts will be collected.
Recyclables include glass, plastics containers, aluminum, metals and clean paper such as junk mail, envelopes, cereal and food boxes, cardboard, magazines - just about anything that tears!
Green waste includes all yard trimmings, grass, tree branches, sawdust, green plants, weeds, etc. - basically, all organic materials generated from your yard work.
- Do not place green waste in plastic bags.
- Ice plant and palm branches cannot be placed in the green waste cart
- Do not place animal and food waste in the green waste cart.
When in doubt, throw it out with the trash. This will minimize contamination.
