Recycling is Easy When You Put It "All-in-One" Container   

Most Broward County cities use single-stream recycling, in which recyclable items are all  placed together in one container. Here are some basic guidelines:

All In One 

 

Place these items together in your recycling cart or bin(s):

  • Newspapers, inserts, catalogs, magazines, junk mail, office paper, soft-covered books, file folders, soda cartons and crushed boxes from items such as cereal, tissues, rice and pasta
  • Plastic containers (narrow-necks only) such as bottles, milk, water, detergent and shampoo containers
  • Glass food and beverage containers, milk/juice cartons and drink boxes
  • Aluminum, steel or tin food and beverage containers
  • Cardboard (flattened, max.: 36" x 36") from non-food items such as shipping boxes

DO NOT place these items in your recycling cart or bin(s):

  • Rechargeable batteries
  • Plastic bags
  • Certain glass products including window or auto glass, light bulbs, mirrors, glass cookware or bakeware, and ceramics
  • Pots, pans, metal utensils or scrap metal
  • Paint and pesticides
  • Electronic waste and accessories
  • Medical waste and pharmaceuticals
  • Household garbage and other waste such as gas cylinders, tanks, rocks, dirt, building debris, flammables, small appliances
  • Pizza boxes
  • Misc. plastics and toys 
  • Hoses, wires, holiday lights
  • Styrofoam or plastic take-out containers or trays
