We have teamed up with Recycle Coach to help educate our residents on proper recycling! By downloading the Recycle Coach app, you will be able to get your curbside collection schedule, sign up for alerts, and quickly learn how to properly dispose of different waste materials.

Our Recycle Coach app has image recognition software. Just take a picture of an item and it will tell you if it is recyclable!



  • Garbage, recycling, and yard debris must be separated by residents and placed curbside by 6 a.m. on the scheduled collection day.
  • Place recyclable materials loose (unbagged) in your recycling cart provided by your service provider.
  • Place the cart no more than three (3) feet from the curb and all obstructions to ensure the automated arm can safely grasp the cart.
  • All items must fit into the cart to be collected. The service provider’s collection crews do not pick up any material that is not in a recycling cart.
  • Do not overfill your recycling cart. This reduces the amount of recyclables that may fall out of the cart and onto the right-of-way.
  • Labels and plastic caps do not have to be removed prior to recycling.  Rinse as necessary and make sure everything is empty, clean, and dry.
  • Recycling carts placed in front of vacant lots, lands, or properties will not be collected.
  • Refrain from placing your cart near parked cars, mailboxes, light poles or other objects as the truck will not have sufficient clearance to lift and empty the cart.
Do Not Recycle

Do NOT recycle the following:

  • Recycling Equipment Tanglers: No plastic bags or film wrapping, holiday lights, wire, electronics, or bubble wrap.
  • Non-Container Plastics: No toys, hangers, packing peanuts, garden hoses, etc.
  • Contaminants: No food waste, garbage, Styrofoam®, diapers, mirrors, window panes, ceramic containers, yard waste, tires, or any item not listed on the acceptable recycling list.

Do you wishcycle? 
Tossing questionable items in the recycling bin, hoping they can somehow be recycled, does more harm than good. Don’t be a wish-cycler. Place only the accepted items in your cart! RECYCLE RIGHT!…it’s kind of a big deal.
