Residential Instructions

Recycling at home is easy.

With a little planning recycling can be a very efficient and effective process.

Please watch the video and read the instructions below to ensure the recycling process is done properly. If recycling is not done the right way, it is not worth doing. You only have to consider a few things when separating material and we'll do the rest.


Thank you for choosing to recycle with KB! Please pay close attention to the following instructions in order to enhance the quality of your service as well as the quality of materials recovered for reuse. Please place containers on the curb by 7:30 am on your pick up day. Make sure both your green and blue lids are securely fastened. If lids don’t fit, please separate additional recycling and bag material individually (all plastics together, all paper together, and all aluminum together).
