Recycle Guys!

Reducing waste, reusing materials and products and recycling are some of the most effective and easiest ways we can protect the environment.  More than half of what we throw away can be recycled. Recycling helps conserve landfill space, preserve natural resources and control rising waste disposal costs.

Recycling Garbage

Please do not bag your recycle items before placing in the recycle container.

Note:  Please do not contaminate your recyclable containers with refuse and yard waste.  Gilbert maintains a 3 strikes and you're out policy.  That means if your blue container is found to be contaminated three times within one year the Town inspectors will remove your blue containers.

What is clean, dry and empty?  All materials placed in your blue container should be relatively clean (i.e., rinse out jars), dry (i.e., empty all soda and liquid from bottles) and empty (i.e., empty all packing materials from corrugated boxes).

When in doubt, please bag items and place in your black container!
