What is Single Stream Recycling?
Single stream recycling refers to a system in which both the collection and processing systems are designed to handle all recyclables such as paper, plastics, metals and other containers. This streamline process will reduce the carbon footprint and help maintain a clean and healthy environment.

All single family households should have a 64-gallon recycling cart that recyclables will conveniently go into which will reduce sorting efforts for residents. The larger 64-gallon cart can hold more than double the amount of the previous dual stream recycling bins, plus there's no need to separate items.
The cart is also equipped with an attached lid. You will not have to worry about losing your lid or misplacing it. The lid will also keep loose items contained and prevent them from blowing out of the cart creating litter on your street.
