What does Single Stream mean?
Single Stream material does not have to be separated and can be placed in one container. All recyclable items (bottles, cans, plastic and paper) can be placed in the recycling bin provided by Royal Carting. All additional recycling containers should be sturdy, reusable receptacles like a plastic crate or a spare "garbage" can. Do not use plastic bags.
All materials must be empty of food residue. Rinsing is helpful. It is not required to remove labels from cans. Glass should not be broken.
