Do recyclables need to be separated?

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 the City’s residential curbside recycling program, plastic and metal containers can be placed with paper in your blue mixed recycling bin.  If you have more material than can fit into your mixed recycling bin, please use another container to hold the paper and mark it “Recyclable” and place it next to your full blue bin.  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.

What can I put in my curbside recycling bin?

All paper, plastic, and metal that is approved on this website for City Curbside Recycling.  Glass must be in a separate bin.

What must stay out?

The residential and commercial curbside recycling program does not accept 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.
