I have to admit, I was wrong about several items on these lists.

Glendale’s recycling program is one way for residents to help conserve natural resources and extend the life of the landfill by diverting recyclables out of the waste stream. Recycling is the process of collecting materials destined for disposal and reprocessing or remanufacturing them for further use. All single family homes are provided a 95 gallon recycling container.

What items cannot be recycled?

• Carpeting and clothing
• Diapers
• Dog and cat food bags
• Drywall
• Fast food items-straws, cups and wrappers
• Furnace filters
• Glass (of any kind)
• Hangers – no metal or plastic
• Household garbage (such as paper plates, bathroom items, dog waste,
paper towels and napkins)
• Landscaping (leaves, grass, tree limbs, dirt and rocks)
• Non container plastic (examples are plastic spoons, forks or knives, PVC pipe, bubble wrap and motor oil containers)
• Plastic bags (except for shredded paper placed in a clear plastic bag)
• Scrap metal
• Shoes
• Styrofoam
• Tile
• Toys
