Junk mail, newsprint, magazines, printing paper,  phone books, etc. Basically, any kind of paper except shredded, waxed, metallic or soiled. (No hard cover books - donate those instead)

Metal Cans

Aluminum or steel (tin) cans aluminum foil & disposable pans are good, too


Any kind of box that doesn't have a waxed coating (such as those used to hold milk, juice and broth) Flatten it to save room in your cart

Plastic Containers

Look for the numbers 1 -7 within the recycle triangles on the bottom of the container (no Styrofoam, no plastic bags)


Green, brown and clear bottles and jars
