At RMS Disposal, inc. our residential recycling program is a voluntary program, you provide a 32-gallon recycling bin with a lid and wheels of your choice. You can recycle the following items:
- No.1 and No. 2 recyclable plastics (milk jugs, liquid detergent bottles, plastic soft drink bottles, etc.) Please rinse and remove lids. Lids are not recyclable and should be placed in the garbage.
- Glass - Please rinse and remove lids. Lids are not recyclable and should be placed in the garbage.
- Magazines and Shopping Catalogues - Both magazines and home shopping catalogues are recyclable. Place them in your recycling bin or with newspapers. A brown paper bag may also be used, NOT a plastic bag.
- Newspapers - Newspapers and inserts are recyclable. Place them under the bin or on top or beside the glass, aluminum, metal and plastic in your bin. To prevent newspapers from being blown by the wind, you may stack them on top of, beside or underneath the recycling bin or place them in a brown paper bag. Please no plastic grocery bags.
- Cardboard - Please place cardboard at curbside for recycling collection. Cardboard cannot be scheduled for bulky item collection. To ensure collection, please make sure that all cardboard boxes are empty, cut into pieces no larger than 3 feet x 3 feet, flattened and stacked neatly at curbside on your scheduled collection day.
