Recycling Collection


MSW provides single stream recycling, which allows all recyclables to be mixed together, and sorted later at a local recycling facility. This approach to recycling is the simplest and most convenient for our customers; helping divert the greatest volume of recyclable materials from landfills.

Residents can typically recycle the following items:

  • Plastic bottles and jugs
  • Aluminum cans
  • Steel cans and lids
  • Paperboard (like cereal boxes)
  • Cardboard
  • Office paper
  • Envelopes and junk mail
  • Newspapers, magazines and inserts
  • Telephone books and catalogs
  • Cartons


Public recycling drop boxes are also provided in several counties.  For the locations and more details on these sites please contact the appropriate solid Waste Authority.
