Recycling Cart “Do’s and Don’ts”

Recycling Cart

  • DO put only recyclable items in the recycling carts.
  • DON’T put garbage in the recycling cart.
  • DO follow the reference list of allowable materials on the cart lid. If you’re unsure if something can be recycled, go to www.rrrasoc.org for further details.
  • DON’T pile extra items next to the recycling cart. Only recyclable items that are in the cart will be recycled.
  • DO set your cart “apart” to allow access for the automated lift device on the recycling truck to pick up your cart. Place the cart away from mailboxes, parked cars, trees, and other garbage cans (as shown in above photo).
  • DO place your cart the right way so the automated lift device can grab it. Follow the directional allows and remember—“hinge toward the house.”
  • DO drill a small hole in the bottom of the cart for rainwater drainage.
