Recycling in Public Spaces

The City is trying hard to reduce contamination of our recycling streams in public places.  It is not the same as residential recycling where you have the facilities to clean out containers. So, we are limiting the recyclable material collected in parks, on the streets, and other public places. We will be developing signage to show you exactly what is accepted and what should be trashed. See the basic guidelines below:

Downtown Recycling

  • Plastics bottles
  • Aluminum cans
  • Glass bottles

Park Recycling

  • Plastics bottles
  • Aluminum cans
  • Glass bottles 

Airport Recycling

  • Plastics bottles
  • Aluminum cans
  • Glass bottles
  • Clean mixed paper

Always put the following in the trash

  • Food containers
  • Beverage cups and lids
  • Food-soiled paper products
