Paper recyclables: place paper recyclables in paper or plastic grocery bag. Shredded paper may be placed in a see-through plastic bag. Place in recycling bin.
Plastic, metal, glass, and carton containers recyclables: empty and rinse plastic, metal, glass, and carton recyclables and set loose in recycling bin.
Household batteries: place is zip top bag and place in recycling bin. Note: batteries are not recycled.
SOCRRA collects batteries curbside through the recycling program as a convenience to residents and so they may be properly disposed of.
Cardboard: residents may prepare their cardboard in one of the following ways.
- Unfold, flatten and bundle boxes with twine or tape, and place next to or under recycling bin. Bundles must be no larger than your recycling bin.
- Unfold, flatten, and tightly stuff all boxes and paper items into a larger box, no larger than the size of your recycling bin.
- Residents of Birmingham Beverly Hills, and Royal Oak may set large empty appliance boxes next to recycling bin – no need to break down! Make sure boxes are clear of packing materials and trash.
