Recycle

Getting Started - Recycling in Allegany County

So you want to recycle but aren’t sure how to get all of your recyclable materials from your home or work to the nearest recycling site.

Well, you’ve come to the right place! Below you will find several examples of containers that you probably already have that you can use to transport your recyclables from your room to the County Recycling Sites

  • You can use a cardboard box or paper bag to collect your recyclables and then you can throw everything (box or paper bag included) into the recycling dumpster or you can reuse them instead.
  • If you already have a reusable shopping bag, those can also be used to store clean recyclables in until you are ready to take them out to the recycling dumpster.
  • If you are looking for a more durable and reusable option, you can use a small trash can or storage tote.

Check out our Recycling Toolkit to print signs for your bins!

Remember NO PLASTIC BAGS are allowed  so please don’t put them in the recycling containers.diy_bin
