News from Municipal Waste Services

Over the past few months, we have received complaints about the trash company not taking recycle or putting it in the same truck as the regular trash.

One of the reasons for this is that sometimes people put non-recyclable items in their bin - like sheet rock or tile or dirt or clothes or just regular trash.
 
Please understand that we know this isn’t always the case and we are working to correct instances of Municipal Waste Services employees dumping good recycling into trash trucks.
 
Acceptable recycle items include: Plastic (grades 1-4, 7), paper, newspaper and magazines, cardboard, tin and aluminum.
 
If MWS does see items like this being put into recycle bins, they will either not take them or will dump them with the regular household trash.
