Curbside Recycling

Curbside recycling should be loose whenever possible. If your recycling must be bagged, then please use only clear or transparent blue recycling bags. For safety reasons, our staff will not open non-transparent bags as they cannot see what is inside. Anything received in black, white, green, and/or orange plastic bags will, therefore, be considered trash and will not be recycled.

Curbside Recycling is only intended to recover household recyclables such as cardboard, paper, plastics, aluminum/tin cans, etc. Other recyclable items such as batteries, metal items, paint cans, etc. need to be brought to Evergreen separately. Please see how to deal with other items in the extended information below.

Please feel free to call our office if you have questions about recyclables and or recycling in general. 204-867-7161
