Do Recycling Right!
Doing recycling right means only certain items go in your curbside recycle cart: Only empty plastic bottles and jugs with the caps on; only empty aluminum, steel and tin cans; only paper, stationery, newspapers, magazines and catalogs, junk mail, paperboard and cardboard. (If you put cereal boxes in the cart, remember to remove the plastic liner and put it in the trash. And remember to break down and flatten out all cardboard boxes to fit inside your cart.)
