Recycle – Do you know what can go into the bin?

Did you know that Sacramento has a single-stream recycling system in place which means everything can go into one can without sorting. This approach allows us to recover up to three times as many recyclable materials as in the past! Please remember to empty & rinse food containers before placing them into recycling bins and be sure that paper is clean and dry.
