Single Stream Recycling

Overview

Recycling changes are here!  Back in 2010, Findlay Township began single stream recycling at curbside. The only change since then has been going from recycling bins to wheeled recycling carts and the removal of glass in 2019. However, in 2024, Waste Management will be adding glass back to the curbside collection materials.

2024-2028 RECYCLING CONTAINER REQUIREMENTS:
Waste Management will collect the single stream recycling from Township or Waste Management issued TOTES ONLY. Additional recycling totes will be available from, and provided by, Waste Management at an annual of cost of $110 in 2024, $117.70 in 2025, $125.94 in 2026, $134.76 in 2027 and $144.19 in 2028. 

New residential construction will be provided with one recycling cart that can be obtained from the Township office. The non-wheeled recycling bins and lids are no longer be available and in 2024 (and going forward) will no longer be accepted at curbside. 

PLEASE REMEMBER TO ALLOW THREE FEET OF SPACE BETWEEN YOUR RECYCLING TOTE, TRASH TOTE AND ANY STRUCTURE (example mailbox, pole, fence, etc.)  NO RECYCLING WILL BE ACCEPTED THAT IS ON TOP OR OUTSIDE THE TOTE!!

The following items will be collected at curbside:

  • Soft Drink and Beer Cans
  • Glass bottle and jars (beginning in 2024) - SEE EXCEPTIONS BELOW 
  • Catalogs

  • Corrugated  (cardboard)

    ***PLEASE NOTE:  PLASTICS #3-7 WILL NO LONGER BE ACCEPTED - THESE ITEMS SHOULD BE PLACED IN THE TRASH***

    ***PLEASE NOTE:  GLASS PANES, CERAMICS, WINDOWS AND MIRRORS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED FOR RECYCLING***
     

Our hauler, Waste Management, will be checking the contents of the recycling containers. If your recycling container contains item(s) that are not acceptable, the entire container will not be collected. If the unacceptable items continue, fines may be assessed by Waste Management.

All acceptable items can be co-mingled in the appropriate recycling container without being separated. Be sure all items are secure in the recycling containers and the lid opens towards the street.
