Single Stream Recycling

Recycling is collected every week on normal collection days.

"Single stream" recycling is a program where all recyclable materials 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

  • Plastics including twist-top plastic bottles and jars WITH caps and ONLY yogurt and butter/margarine containers WITH lids/tops
  • Paper food cartons/containers (not cylinder shaped)
  • Aluminum, tin and aerosol cans
  • Shredded paper placed in a paper sack or cardboard box
  • Newspapers, glossy inserts, magazines, mixed paper and broken down cardboard
  • Glass jars and bottles
  • Cardboard (broken down) and chipboard (cracker and cereal boxes) 

View the image to the right to see a full breakdown of both accepted items and those which need to go in the trash.
