No. Because the recycling trucks that collect your curbside recycling are specially designed for the size of the city recycling bins, we ask that you please use our bins. These bins are made out of 50% post consumer recycled plastic! Additional bins can be purchased from the Recycling and Trash Collection Division for a small fee. Residents receive two bins for free when participating in the recycling program. Also, please remember to use the black lid that is supplied with the bin. The lids keep materials dry on rainy days and help contain litter by keeping items in the bin.
