• What you should and should not recycle

    Updated:

    Republic Services has a list of what can and can't be recycled on recyclingsimplified.com

    The company says all recyclables should be empty, clean and dry -- meaning they are free of food and liquid. Never put recyclables in bags or containers.

    Items you can put in your recycling bin:

    • Paper and cardboard
    • Metal cans
    • Plastic bottles and jugs
    • Glass (preferably not broken)

    Items you should never put in your bin:

    • Food waste
    • Soiled or wet paper and cardboard
    • Bottles filled with liquid
    • Coffee cups
    • Styrofoam
    • Plastic bags

    Republic Services Manager Bill Brinkley says when in doubt, throw it out.
