Residential-Single Stream Curbside Recycling
What Is Single Stream
Single-stream recycling is a system in which all recycled materials – fiber, plastics, tin, and aluminum – are placed, unsorted, in the Recycle Cart. With our single-stream cart residential collection program, OSS Waste can help divert approximately 40% of your household waste from your local landfill. An easy and convenient way to divert your waste from the garbage stream and accomplish your commitment to recycling. All of your recycling can be picked up at one location—your home! Let us give you a convenient, time-saving and hassle-free way to recycle all year round.
All approved recyclables can now be placed together in the recycle cart. Accepted materials are listed below. Other materials for recycling will be added in the future as the necessary processing equipment is put into place. The recycle cart will be picked up in a timeframe that will allow the capacity of the cart to be utilized most efficiently.
Please take a few moments to familiarize yourself with our collection program. It is an easy and convenient way to demonstrate your commitment to recycling and protecting our environment.
