Doorstep Recycling Guidelines

Always place your recyclable items in transparent blue bags. Recycling blue/clear bags can be purchased at major retailers, in-store or online (ex. Home Depot, Walmart, Target, etc.)

Recyclable Items Include:

  • Small cardboard (cereal boxes, small packaging, etc.)
  • Loose paper or junk mail
  • Plastic containers
  • Glass bottles and containers
  • Metal cans
  • NO PLASTIC (grocery style) BAGS

Paper Products

  • Newspaper
  • Magazines, catalogs, phonebooks
  • Brown paper bags
  • Corrugated cardboard (flattened)
  • Office paper and junk mail

Commingled Products

  • Plastic bottles, jugs, jars and tubs (#’s 1-7)
  • Glass bottles and jars
  • Aluminum cans
  • Steel or tin cans


Trash Preparation

Trash MUST be bagged and tied. Place bagged trash in provided containers. NO LOOSE TRASH and NO LIQUIDS IN TRASH. Double bag cat litter and pet waste. No bags over 25 pounds. No broken glass or sharp objects. No more than 3 bags out at night. No over-sized items such as furniture, TVs, large boxes, etc. Make sure to flatten cardboard.


Place Container Outside

Use only the provided container. Place container out between 6pm and 8pm. Place container “right-in-front” of your doorstep. Collection starts promptly at 8pm. Containers placed outside after 8pm may miss pickup.


Bring Container Back Inside

Important! Container MUST be inside by 9am the next day. No containers or trash out during daylight hours. Units with containers or trash out during daylight hours may be fined up to $25 by property management.

How Recycling Works

If you have large amounts of bag recyclables, paper products should be bagged separately from commingled recyclables. Paper products accepted vary by waste collection vendors, but typically include cardboard (flattened and folded), newspapers, magazines, office paper, envelopes, file folders, and phone books. Commingled recyclables include aluminum cans, metal cans, plastic beverage containers, and glass bottles (green, brown and clear.)
