Washington Terrace City has contracted its garbage collection to be done on every Wednesday. Garbage can fees are $13.00 per can. One Recycling can per household is also provided. The City also encourages everyone to generate less waste—use less paper, bags, boxes, buy things that don’t have 2, 3, or 4 layers of wrapping, drink tap water instead of bottled water, get full use out of the things that are purchased and be careful using them so they last. Items that can be recycled include:
· Paper : Cardboard/paperboard, mixed Paper, newspaper, magazines, catalogs, loose & shredded paper (please bag in plastic or paper bags), boxes (cut down large boxes).
· Metal : Aluminum/tin/steel cans, tin, copper, and aluminum.
Plastic :Containers and other solid plastic with a recycling triangle (#1 - #7) Plastic bags that you get from the grocery store can be recycled however, they must be bagged and secured from being tossed around.
These items can’t be recycled.- Glass, loose plastic bags, pizza boxes (contaminated paper/cardboard), plastic without the recycle symbol, garbage, hazardous waste, containers that once held motor oil, batteries, or yard wastes
