Recycling - what can and cannot go curbside
Glass jars and plastic bottles are OK; plastic shopping bags and electronics are not.
The City of Prescott is working with Keep America Beautiful to remind citizens about what is recyclable and what is not, according to a news release from the city.
“We are reaching out because we need citizens’ help to follow these guidelines and place the items from the list below, without bagging, in their bins,” said William Black, Solid Waste Superintendent. “We have worked with Keep America Beautiful to share an informative flier and educational program.”
The campaign is called “Top 10 in the Bin.”
Items that are recyclable include: cardboard, paper, food boxes, mail, jugs, beverage cans, food cans, glass bottles, glass and plastic jars, and plastic bottles.
Some items that are not recyclable curbside include: plastic shopping bags (the city suggests returning these to the store they came from, or reusing them); electronics (the city says these items can be dropped off at the Sundog Ranch Road Transfer Station); clothes and textiles, which can be donated to a local thrift store or appropriate charity organization.
