    Additional Recycling Tips:
    • When in doubt, throw it out. If you have any doubts about whether an item is recyclable, call the Recycle Helpline at 456-3232 for clarification. Or throw the item into your regular garbage. This will help prevent contamination of the materials.
    • Rinse, then recycle. Please remove food residue from all cans, bottles and jars. Rinse and flatten plastic bottles before recycling them.
