Do Recycling Right!

Drop Off and Recycle Plastic Grocery Bags

We now accept plastic grocery bags at any one of the District’s five Green Stations.

Collect your plastic grocery bags at home and drop them off at the days and times Green Stations are open, and we’ll recycle them for FREE.

(Never put plastic grocery bags or any other plastic wrap or film in your curbside cart.)


Your recycling just got easier. How? Because doing recycling right means remembering only three simple steps: The first step is to only put plastic bottles and jugs with the caps on them in your recycling cart. And make sure these plastic containers are empty, with no liquid or food residue in them. The second step is to only put aluminum, steel and tin cans in your cart. Again, empty. And finally, the third step is to only put paper, cardboard, newspapers, junk mail, and paperboard boxes in your cart. If you put cereal boxes in the cart, remember to remove the plastic liner. It should go in the trash. And remember to break down and flatten out all cardboard boxes to fit inside your cart.
