Plastic items may have the recycling symbol on them but that doesn't mean the item is recyclable curbside. The number inside the chasing arrows (pictured below) does not designate whether or not it is recyclable curbside, it only designates what type of plastic the item is made from.

If you have extra cardboard from a recent move or purchase and it does not fit in your recycling cart, you have a couple of options for recycling it:

1) Place it curbside next to your recycling cart on your recycling day. It needs to be flattened and cut into pieces no larger than 3'x3' (so it will fit in the truck). If you have a large amount of extra cardboard that you’re putting out curbside, we would appreciate if you could let us know in advance.

2) Bring it to our recycling depot in Sherwood. It needs to be flattened and cut into pieces no larger than 5'x5'. Our depot is open Monday through Friday, 8:00am-4:30pm.
