Items Collected & Sorting Recyclables
How to SortSeparate the items below in separate sacks. Items not properly separated will be left at the curb.
|Chipboard (cereal boxes, etc. should be flattened and liners removed)|
|Envelopes (remove plastic window from window envelopes)|
|Newsprint with glossy inserts left in|
|Containers #1-5 and 7|
Note: Rinse, remove caps and rings; labels may remain on. Crush to save space.
|Food cans (such as soup and tuna cans)|
Note: Remove labels and rinse. Remove ends and crush to save space (ends may be placed in the crushed can).
- Gift wrap paper, packing paper, styrofoam, or packing peanuts. Place these in your garbage.
- Glass is not accepted as a result of a declining market for glass collected, but may be recycled at additional recycling sites, including Republic Services Recycling, East Side Recycling Center, Hy-Vee (North Dodge), and Iowa City Landfill and Recycle Center.
