Single stream recycling means you do not need to separate your plastics, paper, metals and other recyclables), as that can all go into the recycling receptacle (either loosely or in a clear bag–no black bags into the recycling containers please). No bulky waste, such as old TVs, mattresses or tires. Please do not leave trash out at night, as it will attract critters here in the country, including (but not limited to) skunks, raccoons, opposums, and fox.
