Brown Paper Bags & Newspapers
Recycle clean, dry newspapers and inserts. Wet newspapers cannot be accepted. If
it is going to rain, please either cover the newspapers or save them for next week.
Brown shopping bags are accepted in the orange bin, but not plastic bags. Take plastic
bags to grocery stores for recycling.
Magazines, Catalogs & Telephone Books
All magazines, catalogs, and telephone books are recyclable.
Clean corrugated cardboard (the kind with a wavy layer in the middle). Cardboard
boxes should be no larger than 3' x 3'. Pasteboard boxes, such as cereal or shoe
boxes or beverage cartons. Empty all packing materials and FLATTEN boxes. It is
not necessary to cut boxes apart.
Office Paper & Junk Mail
Office paper and junk mail is recyclable. Please no plastic credit cards or shredded
paper. Window envelopes are recyclable. Place the blue bin on top of the orange
bin to keep paper from littering the street.

orange bin. Paperback novels that are still in good condition should be donated
if possible, but damaged or unreadable paperbacks can be recycled.
