Recycling Often. Recycle Right.

March Recycling Tip - 

Know before you throw. 

The City of Parkland presents monthly recycling tips. Each month we will introduce the "Dirty Dozen." These items are specific to what we are asking residents to keep out of their recycling bins. 

Food is the biggest contaminator of your recycle items. One greasy pizza box can ruin all of your recycling efforts. Be sure these contaminated paper items (paper plates, cups, and napkins) stay out of your recycling containers and go directly into the trash.  

If those paper items are clean and free of food and grease feel free to put into the recycling bin. And remember, when in doubt, throw it out.
