Paper Towels Do Not Go in Recycling Cart

Paper Towels Go In Trash

Paper towels are not recyclable in the High Desert and Mountain area. They belong in your garbage bin. Please also make sure the plastic film packaging that new paper towels often come in goes in the trash too. Plastic film (the kind you can squish up in your hand) is not recyclable in your curbside bin.
