 #1 and #2 Plastics Items don't have to be perfectly clean but a good rinse would help with odors and pests as these items go straight to the processing center. It's OK to leave caps and labels on water bottles.  If you can flatten your bottles to help save room. 
           Examples of #1 Plastics: Water and soda bottles, peanut butter containers, salad dressing and                                                                               vegetable oil containers, etc. 

         Examples of #2 Plastics: Milk jugs, juice bottles, detergent and household cleaner bottles,                                                                                      shampoo bottles, etc. 

 

Cardboard Please break down your boxes and remove all packaging.  It really allows for a lot more to fit in the bins. 
Paper and Cardboard go in separate containers

 

 Paper Please remove staples except from magazines.  Small view envelopes
can be recycled.

 

Aluminum Cans Only Please flatten to save room.  Foil and foil based products are not ok. 

 

Items for recycling can be taken to the Citizens Collection Station (Midland Residents Only) at 4100 Smith Road or BRI (Both Commercial and Residential) at 26 W. Industrial. Click here for hours of operation. 

All plastics, cans, and paper should be emptied out from the plastic bags.  Those bags are contamination when put in the containers.  The only exception is shredded paper, it should be in a bag. 

 

The Citizens Collection Station is also the location for you to properly dispose of yard waste and large items such as appliances and household furniture.
