How to Recycle

 We'll walk you through the step-by-step process of sorting your trash for effective recycling.

The 5 colors to remember

Green - Organic Waste (for composting)

Yellow - Recycling (to be remade into other things)

Orange - Hazardous Waste (to be disposed of in a safe manner)

Red - Infected Waste (to be disposed of in a safe manner)

Blue - Trash for Landfill (we want to reduce this as much as possible)

Use  clear colored bags so that each garbage bin is easily differentiated.
