PLEASE DISCARD WITH REGULAR TRASH—

REMEMBER, WHEN IN DOUBT-THROW IT OUT!

 

Please Keep Your Recyclables Clean and Dry and We ALL Save Money.
Remember to use CLEAR OR SEE-THRU BAGS for garbage & recyclables so our drivers
can see that you are recycling properly. However, we prefer the recycling is kept loose for quicker
separation on the recycling floor—this saves time and labor. Your help is greatly appreciated!
By working together we can keep YOUR Community
Clean, Safe, and Beautiful!
