Use the City’s Residential Recycling Drop-off Centers to recycle the same full range of materials accepted in the Blue Cart Recycling Program, including paper, plastics, glass and cardboard.  Toss all your recyclables in together; no sorting or special bags are required. You may use a bag to transport your materials to the drop-off center; however, it will be pulled at the recycling facility as plastic bags are not accepted in the program.
