What is Recyclable?
We encourage you to recycle as much of your waste as possible. But you’ll need to read the labels or containers to be certain your products come in recyclable packaging. If it is recyclable, always make sure your item is empty and dry before placing it in your blue cart or blue bag. Recycling carts are available to all Truckee neighborhoods.
Here’s what CAN be recycled:
- Plastics #1 & 2
Clean and empty materials only. That means no liquid or food residue in your containers. Place materials directly into your cart – no plastic bags in your cart!
Here’s what must be trashed:
- Plastics #3-7 (including plastic bags, film plastic)
- Soft plastics (plastic bags)
- Food-soiled paper & cardboard (dirty napkins and pizza boxes)
- Wax-lined paper & cardboard (coffee cups, almond milk containers, drink cups)
- Foil-lined wrappers
Didn’t get a lid sticker on your cart? Contact us to pick one up from Town Hall or have it mailed to your property.
