What cans do you accept?
We accept aluminum and steel cans. We also accept Aerosol Cans generated from the kitchen and bath only. NO other type of metal is accepted.
Do I have to remove the paper label, cut the bottom out and flatten my steel cans?
No – there’s no need to remove labels, bottom lids or flattened steel cans. Please rinse out contents if the product is thick like pudding.
Should I flatten my aluminum cans?
No – Please do not flatten aluminum cans or any recyclable container. Flattening aluminum cans will result in cans not separating from paper products when running through automated equipment designed to separate recyclables based on their weight and whether they are a 2D or 3D object
Can I recycle aluminum foil, pie pans or cooking trays with my aluminum cans?
No – These items are a lighter gauge aluminum with a lower flash point than aluminum cans. Because of this, there is a little yield of useable material to be for aluminum can sheeting
Can I recycle aerosol cans?
Yes – Aerosol cans generated from the kitchen and bathroom can be placed in your recycle container. NO aerosol cans generated from the garage or shed are acceptable in the recycle container.
