Ontario County residents have been separating recyclables from waste for 25-plus years. Every county resident should have a clear, simple way to recycle, whether you set out a bin at the curb or drop off recyclables at your local transfer station. If you live in an apartment where you toss your trash in a dumpster, there should be a separate container available for recycling.
Help us Recycle Right by always keeping these items out of your recycle bin.
What Goes in the Recycling Bin?
Single Stream Recycling
Even if you already sort of know how Single Stream Recycling works, here are the details.
Ontario County offers Single-Stream recycling, sometimes called Zero-Sort recycling. That means all the acceptable bin-friendly materials listed here can go in the same recycle bin. See where they go from there in the short video below from Casella Waste Systems.
