What is single stream recycling?
Single stream (also known as fully commingled) recycling refers to a system in which all paper fibers and containers are mixed together into one container instead of being sorted into separate commodities (newspaper, cardboard, plastic, glass, etc.) by the resident and handled separately throughout the collection process. In single stream, the resident can now place all recycling material into the same container.
Large cardboard boxes must be cut down or flattened in order to be placed in tote.
