Recyclable material can be placed in the blue container(s) in any order, there is no need to sort them by type. If residents randomly generate excess recyclable material that does not fit in the blue recycle container(s), they are advised to flatten and bundle cardboard boxes if they don’t fit in the blue container(s) and stack/bundle them adjacent to the blue barrel, and place other excess recyclables in paper bags or closed cardboard boxes, curbside on collection day, adjacent to their recycle barrel. Please call EJ Harrison and Sons at (805) 647-1414 to notify them that there will be extra recyclables to be picked up. If residents require a permanent additional blue recycle container, they may call the City’s Utilities Division at (805) 388-5325 to request an additional container.
