LEARN HOW TO GO GREEN
How to set out your garage cart, recycling cart, yard waste and trash
What goes on the curb, and what does not
Household garbage, including food waste and trash
Cardboard & paper bags, telephone books, plastic jugs #1-2, newspaper, steel & tin cans, magazines & catalogs, junk mail & office paper, household plastics #1-6 are all accepted in your recycle bin. All plastic bottles must be rinsed out completely. If you are unsure if your plastic item falls under the #1-6 category look for the triangle recycle symbol on your item with the number in the middle.
No plastic bags, hangers, toys, 6 pack rings, chemical containers, hardcover books, carbon paper, soiled paper, styrofoam, aerosol cans, wire hangers, and non food metal containers. These items are NOT accepted in your recycle bin.
If your recycle bin has prohibited items inside the container you will receive a warning and we will not service your container. If you receive 3 warnings we will pull your recycle bin completely and you will not have the option to recycle.
BAGGED LEAVES & GRASS
Do not mix with bulky trash. If it is placed in bags it will be serviced on your regular trash service day. Place next to your garbage can.
Items that are too bulky/heavy to fit in the garbage can: examples include automobile parts, furniture, camper tops, seats, etc.
Large electrical goods used domestically, such as refrigerators and washing machines, typically white in color.
NO HAZARDOUS WASTE ALLOWED
No household hazardous waste are allowed in the cart or curbside (electronics, chemicals, paint, batteries).
NO CONTRACTOR’S TRASH
Large trees and woody waste placed at the curb by a tree service or contractor will not be picked up by Pelican Waste. It is the responsibility of the tree service to haul away the cut trees and limbs. If the contractor refuses or fails to do so, the homeowner muct haul away the material.
