Below is our Dirty Dozen hit list of the WORST THINGSTO PUT IN YOUR GREY SINGLE STREAM RECYCLINGCART. Please help make our single-stream recyclingprogram a success by keeping these materials OUT.
 When is Pickup
Trash is picked up once per week.
Recycling ispicked up once every other week on your trashcollection day and must be out by 7 a.m.
Holidays
Trash and recycling collection is not providedon the following nine holidays
: New Year’s Day,Martin Luther King Day, President’s Day, MemorialDay, Independence Day, Labor Day, Veteran’s Day,Thanksgiving, & Christmas. Because of this, if yourcollection day falls on the holiday, or later thatsame week, your collection will be one day behindfor that week only.
We want to make recycling as easy as possiblefor you
.Single stream recycling allows for allrecyclable materials to go into one container (greycontainer). The only thing you have to do is emptyand rinse! Please do not atten aluminum cansor containers.
Used Automotive Oil Heats Up thePublic Works Maintenance Facility
The sanitation division has a motor oil collection site located at the City RecyclingCenter. The oil collected is reused to heat two buildings located at the Public WorksMaintenance Facility. Each year, our collection site receives about 4,000 gallons ofused motor oil. This in turn means lower costs to heat buildings and reuse of usedmotor oil.
If you ve motor oil tt you need to dipoe of, you cn bring it by teCity Recycling Center — in non-opque continer, (gllon milk jug). No cemiclplee. Te collection ite i open ix dy  week: Mondy–Wednedy from 8:30.m. to 4:30 p.m. Turdy–sturdy from 8:30 .m. to 5:45 p.m.
 Just bring yourutility bill indicating you are a trash subscription customer and present that to theperson at the window and they will direct you to the collection bins.

NO Pltic Bg
in single-stream recycling cart 
Plastic bags are the WORST contaminantsin the recycling cart. They get wet anddirty and cannot be recycled. Plastic bagscan be recycled at Eco-Cycle CHaRM orat participating grocery stores if they areclean, dry and empty. Find grocery storerecycling locations at www.ecocycle.org/htrg.
NO Mteril in Pltic Bg
in single-stream recycling cart 
Workers have to slow the conveyor beltsto rip open bags that contain recyclablesand then add the bag to the heap of bagsbound for the landll. These inefciencieswaste time and money.
NO sredded Pper
in single-stream recycling cart 
Shredded paper is too small to sort.The pieces get wet, gum up the sortingequipment and cause it to malfunction.Recycle shredded paper in the bin marked“Paperboard” at the Longmont RecyclingDrop-off Center.
NO scrp Metl
in single-stream recycling cart 
Scrap metal items of any size should notgo in your curbside cart. These itemscause excessive damage to the recyclingequipment. Please take these materials tothe Longmont Recycling Drop-off Centerand look for the bin marked “Scrap Metal.”
NO hzrdou Wte
in single-stream recycling cart 
Hazardous waste such as paint, automotiveuids, car batteries and pesticidesmust be taken to the Boulder CountyHousehold Hazardous Waste Facility, NOTthe Recycling Center. Call 303.441.4800for more information. The LongmontRecycling Center accepts car batteries andmotor oil for recycling. See hours above.

in single-stream recycling cart 
Syringes, needles, diapers and othersanitary products are not recyclable. Visitwww.ecocycle.org/htrg for informationabout handling sharps safely.
NO Non-Recyclble Pltic
in single-stream recycling cart

®
and any otherplastics not listed in these guidelines arenot recyclable.
NO Flttened Continer
in single-stream recycling cart 
The Single-Stream sorting equipmentseparates “ats” (paper) from “rounds”(containers). When containers areattened, the equipment mistakenlysends them to the paper side of thefacility, signicantly contaminating thepaper we’re sending to market.
NO Cp or Lidon Gl Bottle or Jr
in single-stream recycling cart 
Metal lids can be removed and recycled loosein the bin. Plastic lids and caps from glassbottles and jars should be thrown away.
NO Liquid
in single-stream recycling cart 
When we compact bottles for shipping,liquids drip and splatter, creating a sticky,smelly mess on the sorting oor. Pleasecompletely empty and quickly rinse out allcontainers before recycling.
NO Cermic orNon-Recyclble Gl
in single-stream recycling cart 
Ceramics, china, dishes, mirrors, lightbulbs, Pyrex
®
, porcelain and window glassshould not go in the cart! Their differentmelting points and chemical compositionswill ruin new glass bottles. If our buyersees just one of these on the top of a loadof glass, the entire load could be rejected.
NO Frozen Food Boxe
in single-stream recycling cart 
Paperboard boxes that were designedfor frozen foods, such as frozen pizza andentrees, have a plastic polymer sprayedon them to protect against freezer burn.That same coating prevents the box frombreaking up in the recycling process. Thesematerials are not recyclable OR compostable.
