When it comes to recycling, everyone has a part to play. Republic Services and the City of Yorba Linda would like to remind residents that they can play an integral role in the preservation of the environment by ensuring that recyclables do not end up in landfills. Recycling can be as simple as 1-2-3 by following these simple tips:
- Know what to throw - Cardboard, paper, metal cans, and plastic bottles and jugs are all recyclable;
- Empty. Clean. Dry. (TM) - Recyclables should be free from food and liquid. This may mean rinsing and drying items before depositing them in the recycling bin; and
- Keep it loose - Recyclables should not not be placed in trash bags or containers, instead, deposit recyclables directly into the recycling bin.
