Also Recyclable

Tetra Packs

Tetra Packs are recyclable, provided that they are be rinsed of all food residue and do not contain metallic layers such as aluminum which are found as:

  • Part of an inside lining
  • Sandwiched between the waxed surfaces of frozen food and some juice boxes

Car Batteries

Car batteries are collected on regular collection days and recycled.

Used Oil

Motor Oil

If you change your own automobile oil, the City will collect it on your regular collection day. Place the oil in a sealed container (milk jug, 2-liter bottle, etc.) and place it near your recyclables. 

This oil will be used to heat the vehicle maintenance area of the Public Works garage, thus reducing natural gas costs.

Cooking Oil

As with used motor oil, place used cooking oil in a sealed container (milk jug, 2-liter bottle, etc.) and place it near your recyclables.
