What do I do if I need more than one recycling container; is there a limit?
You may set out as many recycling containers as needed; there is no limit to the amount of recycling you can set out. Large items such as cardboard and rigid plastic items can be placed next to the containers. Mark an “X” on any additional containers or tie a blue bag to the handle to identify them as recycling containers. See the recycling container question if you wish to obtain additional recycling stickers. Alternatively, you may print off a recycling sticker by clicking the icon at the top of this web page.
