Residents are asked to place the following items in the colored bins as indicated below: blue recycle cart and bin plus yellow recycle cart and bin

 BLUE BIN >

  • Aluminum
  • Steel Cans
  • Glass Bottles
  • Glass Jars
  • Drink Boxes
  • Milk & Juice Cartons
  • All Plastic Containers

 

         

Please do not place plastic grocery bags or styrofoam in either of the recycling containers. The Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County does not recycle these materials.

YELLOW BIN >

  • Newspapers
  • Beverage Cartons
  • Tissue Boxes
  • Dry Food Boxes
  • Unwanted Mail
  • School/Office Paper
  • Corrugated Cardboard Boxes
  • Magazines
  • Catalogs
  • Telephone Books

Cardboard boxes need to be flattened and cut to 3' x 3' sections maximum. Place the cardboard in, or next to,the yellow recycling container. We recognize that it is sometimes difficult to flatten and reduce the size of cardboard. However, our recycling trucks can only accept material that is no larger than 3' x 3' in size. Also, the recycling trucks do not compact their contents. Thus, if cardboard is not flattened we would be carrying many empty boxes full of air causing multiple trips to the disposal site. This would add cost to your monthly services.
