Let’s Talk Trash lends you a hand with recycling!

Check out these fun videos that offer a helping hand in understanding what items are accepted and not accepted at our local recycling depots!

Note that there have been a few updates since these videos were published, including:

  • A NEW category of flexible plastics are now accepted at all depots.
  • Paper lined with plastic is no longer accepted.  This includes some dogfood bags, chip bags, coffee bags, etc.
