Mixed Wastepaper

Curbside Recycling Just Got Even Better!

Effective September 1st, 2023 we are accepting mixed wastepaper in our curbside recycling program! What is mixed wastepaper? Here is list of some of the most common types of mixed waste paper acceptable for recycling.

  • Cereal Boxes
  • Junk Mail
  • Magazines
  • Office Paper
  • Egg Cartons (paper only, no Styrofoam or plastic)
  • Pizza Boxes (no grease, food residue or liners)
  • Shoe Boxes
  • Toilet Paper and Paper Towel Tubes
  • Wrapping Paper (no foil, plastic wrap or tissue paper)
  • File Folders
  • Envelopes (with or without windows)
  • Paperback Books

Even though the list of mixed waste paper recyclable items is extensive, there are still plenty of items that can’t be recycled and will contaminate the other items in your recycle cart. This includes:

  • Candy Wrappers
  • Foil and Foil Paper
  • Food-Contaminated Paper
  • Frozen and Refrigerated Food Boxes and Cartons
  • Paper Towels and Napkins 
  • Paper Cups and Plates
  • Receipts
  • Tissue and Toilet Paper
  • Waxed Paper
  • Shredded Paper
  • Snack Food Bags


  • Loosely place all your recyclables items in your curbside recycle cart. Do not bag them as plastic bags are not accepted in these containers.
  • Do not use the chasing arrows symbol as a method to determine what is accepted for recycling. Follow our program guidelines only.
  • When in doubt, let our Waste Wizard help out!


The Waste Hierarchy ranks waste management options from the most environmentally friendly to the least.

REDUCE takes priority! Avoiding unnecessary consumption of goods and services will not only save you money, but it is the most effective way in conserving our natural resources and saving space in our landfills. A simple way to make a big impact and save money is using a reusable water bottle instead of one-time use plastic water bottles.

REUSE gives a product a second-life! Reusing common items can be done by repairing, sharing, and up-cycling.

RECYCLING can turn a used material into a raw material to create a new product.


To ensure a viable recycling product is delivered to recycling markets, it is necessary to eliminate all contamination in your recycling container. What is contamination? Contamination of recycling can be caused by items such as; food scraps, lids, plastic bags, coffee pods, straws, to-go containers, Styrofoam, trash or any other ‘non-program’ material.

Unfortunately, “Wishful” recycling (the hope that a material is recyclable somewhere) can have serious consequences for your haulers, the recycling programs offered, and the overall recycling markets such as, an entire truck load of recycling getting rejected and sent to a landfill.

Make your recycling efforts count by following our guidelines and 'When in doubt, let our Waste Wizard help out'.


Pure used motor oil must be poured into one gallon not breakable containers with tight fitting screw caps. Please do not mix any other solvents or fluids such as water, antifreeze, old fuel, etc. Place jugs NEXT TO your recycle cart and call our office by 4pm the day before your pick up, so that we can make your driver aware that you have motor oil.
