Single stream recycling has been in the works since 2013 in several cities in Florida. I was excited to see when I came home on Saturday a big green recycling cart in my yard. It was just like Christmas for me because I love recycling and anything that has to do with saving the earth. This big and beautiful green cart will now be available to fill with all the recyclables in one shot. No more separate bins here.
All of the items you currently recycle can go in this recycling cart and then some:
Newspapers Pizza Boxes (Clean, no grease)
Magazines Phone Books
Office Paper File Folders
Facial Tissue Boxes Paper Tubes (Paper Towels)
Cardboard Milk and Juice Cartons
Empty Aerosol Cans
Metal Pie Plates
Manual Can Openers
Laundry Detergent Bottles
ITEMS NOT ACCEPTED
Hoses Bottle Caps
Pyrex Cookware Window Glass
Six Pack Rings
For information on how to dispose of or recycle these items, call or visit our websites.

Starting on May 1st, place the cart curbside before 7:00 a.m. on your collection day. Check with your homeowners association, if applicable, to determine when you can place it at the curb, when it must be brought back to the house, and where it can be stored.
Please remember- the more you recycle the better it is for the environment and our community. Recycling is a winner for all of us.
