Yes, but only to an extent.
In both residential and commercial recycling, GLASS MUST BE SEPARATED. This is because it is brought to BuRRT and immediately crushed and not sorted, so if you put other recyclables in your glass bin, they will most likely end up in the trash. Or, if you put glass in the bin with your other recyclables and it is not seen when collected, you are putting the BuRRT employees at risk when they sort the recyclables by hand.
In residential curbside recycling, paper should be placed in a paper bag to prevent from blowing away. The paper bag should be placed in the bin that does not have the glass recyclables. In commercial recycling, paper can be mixed with the non glass recyclables (plastics and metals), and shredded paper should be tied off in a plastic bag.
In residential curbside recycling, cardboard should be flattend and cut to be less than 3 x 3 feet. Bundle in large amounts. For commercial recycling, a cardboard only dumpster can be used, or it can be bundled and placed next to the other recyclables.
The residential and commercial curbside recycling program does not accept phone books (see below), HHW or electronics in the bins. If your item is not accepted in the recycling bin, see the other materials page to find out where you may be able to recycle it.
The City will be placing dumpsters for PHONE BOOK recycling in the following locations:
The dumpsters will be in place from April 13 until August 30, 2013.
