Extra recycling accumulates quickly during the holidays. After you fill your recycling cart, you can place leftover recyclable materials next to the cart. Place smaller recyclable items in paper bags before putting them next to the recycling cart. Cardboard should be flattened and stacked into a pile no larger than three feet wide and one foot tall. Bundle the stacked cardboard with string or twine. If you regularly have extra recycling, you can request a second recycling cart at no cost. For more information, visit
