Preparing Your Recycling: Three Steps

You can help ensure that more materials are recycled as part of the MMBC packaging and printed paper recycling program by following these simple steps:

  1. Empty and rinse your containers. Containers with contents remaining can’t be recycled, and can harm workers in the recycling facility or damage machinery.
  2. Sort your materials for curbside or multi-family collection or for taking to the depot. Follow the sorting instructions from your recycling provider and place materials loose within your collection container(s). Please do not place materials inside plastic bags (such as grocery store bags) before adding them to your recycling.
  3. Set your materials out on collection day, or take them to your nearest depot.

If you have questions about how to sort your recycling, contact your recycling collector or nearest depot.
