What Can I Recycle?

December 17, 2012 4:22 PM

Getting ready to go overseas or leave campus? Remember to recycle before tossing items left in the fridge. 

The 2013 Recyclopedia is now available online at:

The City of Madison has added new materials to the program that will increase the types of material that we can recycle.

  • New to the program are pots and pans, small metal appliances such as toasters, empty metal paint cans, and plumbing fixtures.
  • We will start accepting plastic bags in the curbside recycling program. Plastic bags must be put inside a plastic bag and that bag should be tied shut. We need to have the bags in a bag to prevent loose bags from getting tangled in the sorting equipment.
  • Finally, we have made a significant addition to the types of plastic we will take in the green carts. We now accept all plastic bottles, jugs, and containers numbered 1-7. This will include dairy tubs, deli containers, clamshells, and produce containers and their lids.
  • The caps on plastic bottles and jugs can remain on the container. We will be able to recycle the lids from plastic tubs and deli containers but they should be removed and put in the cart separately.

You will find complete details on the changes on pages 6 & 7.
