Recycling FAQ's

What can I recycle?

  • Glass (all colors)
  • Paper and cardboard
  • Plastic grocery bags
  • Plastics #1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7
I just moved into the district and don't have a bin. How do I get one?
Please contact us through the website contact form and we will arrange to have a bin delivered.
How will you keep track of the results?
Once a month, RRT will have a car follow the truck and count each bin collected. We also receive weekly tonnage reports from the recycling facility. We can use this data for statistical analysis. Participation has been very high.  We pick up from more than 80% of homes in the district each month, collecting more than 200 tons of recycling each year.
Do I need to sort my recyclables?
No. All recyclable material can be put into together. It is sorted at the recycling facility.
How can I be assured that my recyclables are not going into landfill?
RRT does not have access to landfill. They deal solely with recycling.
I have heard that the market for recyclables is not good and there is no money to be made right now. Why would anyone want to take our recyclables?
We are paying for the service. RRT makes its money by picking up residential recycleables, not from the recyclables themselves.
What should I do with extra items or large boxes that do not fit in my bin?
You can put extra items in a clear bag or another bin and place it next to your green bin.
Where should I put my bin? Does it need to be by the curb?
No, please put your recycling bin wherever you put your trashcans. RRT will collect from the same location that our trash company does.
What do I do on windy days?
I recommend that you stack your items carefully inside the bin. Put paper on the bottom and cover it with cans or plastics. This will help keep the items in the bin. Also, do not overfill your bin. You can put additional items out in a second bin or in a clear plastic bag.
How is the program being paid for?
The cost of the service is $3.50 per household per month. Currently the program is being paid for out of MUD 365's operating budget.
Where can I recycle items not included in this program (electronics, hazardous household products, etc.)?
