Materials usually are either “dry” and recyclable, or “wet” and compostable. We offer some general guidelines below.
Keep in mind that most materials have some immediate value — bottles and cans alone can yield a lot of cash for school programs and more. See CRV information for residents and schools.
If you want to know more about the issues involved with recycling various materials, consider visiting CalRecycle’s web site, which contains information on many materials.
It’s important to follow your town or county’s recycling rules, so be sure to check with your hauler to make sure you’re recycling right.
Please flatten boxes and remove liners
from cereal/food boxes.
The best place to start for information about your local curbside recycling service is to contact your hauler.
