Recycling At Home

What is "single stream" recycling?
No matter what kind of recycling container you use- cart, bin, box or paper bag- single stream recycling means no sorting materials at home! Recyclable paper, glass, plastic, cardboard and metals all go in the same collection container, loose not bagged. It's easy!
