Don't Count on the Numbers

Plastic products are sometimes stamped with a number surrounded by the recycling symbol. These numbers indicate the general type of resin used to make a plastic product. It is important to understand that the existence of this plastic resin code on the product does not mean that it is acceptable in our curbside recycling collection program.

We accept plastic bottles, jugs and tubs.If a plastic item falls outside that group of items, it should, unfortunately, go into the trash to avoid contaminating your recycling stream.

When in doubt, use our searchable “What Goes Where” online tool to determine if a material can be reused, recycled, composted, or disposed of in your trash.

Visit our Recycling Services page for more information on recycling.
