Single Stream Recycling

Recycling is collected every week on normal collection days. 

"Single stream" recycling is a program where all recyclable materials (newspapers, magazines, junk mail, telephone books, cardboard, tin and aluminum cans, plastics (#1-#7) and glass jars/bottles) are placed into one recycling container which is picked up every week on the same day as garbage. ASI provides a 96-gallon bin that is similar to the 96-gallon garbage bin, except that the lid will be yellow.

Acceptable Materials

  • Aluminum and tin
  • All glass
  • Cardboard
  • Junk mail and mixed paper including chipboard (cracker and cereal boxes)
  • Newspaper
