Huntington Recycles: All In One
Recycle like you’ve never recycled before!
Beginning in January 2015 you can combine all of your recyclables in one container for collection. You no longer need to sort your paper and cardboard from your bottles, cans and plastics. It’s “All In One” now!
Your “All In One” recycling bin can contain:
NEW for 2017! Milk & Juice Cartons! You can now recycle cartons used for liquids such as juices, milks, or soups. Please empty and clean before recycling.
And as always we want your:
Mixed Paper: Newspaper, magazines, mail (junk and personal), school papers, scrap paper, Pennysavers and other circulars, cereal and other grocery boxes, paperback books, detergent boxes and shoe boxes.
Cardboard: Shipping and other corrugated boxes. Any boxes that cannot easily fit in your dedicated recycling container may be flattened, tied and placed alongside the recycling container.
Glass: Empty jars and bottles (rinsed). Lids and tops are recyclable but should be removed and placed loose in the recycling container.
Metal: Empty tin and aluminum food and beverage cans (rinsed), empty aerosol cans, clean disposable aluminum pans and trays, clean aluminum foil.
Plastic: All plastic food, beverage, soap, shampoo, conditioner, detergent, bleach, cleaner bottles, plastic flower pots and containers with ∆1 through ∆7 accepted (please rinse before recycling).
Place your “All In One” recycling at the curb on days indicated by the on-line Trash Pickup and Recycling Calendar. Make sure the container is marked with a recycling sticker and has holes in the bottom for drainage. Use any rigid container that is 42 gallons or less in volume and weighs 50 lbs. or less when full. If one recycling container isn’t enough to hold everything just add another. Recycling collection begins at 5 a.m. so remember to have your recyclables out before this time.
Do not place recycling out in plastic bags. They will not be collected.
Unacceptable Curbside Recyclables: Dispose of these items in regular trash except where indicated by a note.
Mixed Paper: Tissues, paper towels, soiled paper, hardcover books, and spiral notebooks.
Cardboard: All wax coated cardboard and soiled cardboard food boxes.
Glass: Ceramic, porcelain, mirrors, drinking glasses, auto glass, plate glass and light bulbs.
Metal: Hangers (see note), paint cans, and durable cookware.
Plastic: Styrofoam (see note), plastic bags and plastic wrap (see note), plastic toys, anti-freeze containers, plastic or rubber hoses, Tupperware or reusable plastic housewares, plastic plates and utensils, and items without a resin code symbol ∆.
(Note)These items are recyclable, just not through the Town’s curbside collection program. Many dry cleaners will accept hangers returned from homeowners. New York State law mandates that larger supermarkets and retailers have plastic bag recycling programs. Styrofoam can be dropped off at our Recycling Center.
Plastic and Styrofoam packaging fill (peanuts) can be recycled. Telephone 1-800-828-2214 for the location of the nearest package store or business which accepts plastic loose fill for reuse.
