Recycle It!
Don’t think you have enough for a recycle bin? Think again! There are plenty of items that you can place in your blue container that can be recycled that are not CA CRV items, those items include:

  • PAPER cardboard or chipboard boxes
  • GLASS bottles or jars
  • METAL food cans
  • PLASTIC bottles OR jugs

**Place recyclable materials in the BLUE container loosely, DO NOT bag them.
Plastic bags go into your GRAY trash container or it can be recycled at most major stores.
