Rigid plastic clam-shell containers and poly-coated paper box containers can go in your curbside recycling cart. Recycle clean containers only. Dirty non-compostable containers and styrofoam containers and cups go in the garbage. To reduce waste, bring your own resealable container for take-out food or left-overs.
Plastic-like containers marked "Compostable" go in the garbage unless they are approved as compostable by Cedar Grove (more information). Then they can go in the food and yard waste cart.
