How do I dispose of glass, cans and plastic?

When the bottles and cans symbol appears on your Trash and Recycling Calendar, EnCon will pick up glass, metal cans and plastics from your curbside in your blue recycling bin or clear plastic bags. EnCon cannot collect recycling material from any other type of receptacle.

  • Aluminum and Metal Cans - rinse cans, labels may remain in place
  • Glass Jars and Bottles - rinse jars and bottles, labels may be left on, remove caps, lids and wire rings (do not break glass or put plate glass, drinking glasses, light bulbs or window panes in the recycling bin)
  • Plastic Bottles - rinse plastic bottles and remove caps and pumps (to fit more containers in the bin, flatten them)
