"Single stream" means that all recyclables are placed loose in the same dumpster - they do not need to be separated. Recyclables we can accept include:
- #1 and #2 plastic bottles and jars
- Aluminum, steel and tin cans
- Glass containers
- Corrugated cardboard (no food-contaminated cardboard or paper)
- Office paper
- Newspaper and newsprint
- Magazines, catalogs, and other materials on similar paper
Please flatten cardboard boxes before placing them into the dumpster. Rinse all plastic, metal and glass containers until they're free of residue.
The recyclables are taken to a center where a machine separates them: please do not tie, bag or box the recyclables. They need to be loose in the dumpster.
All trash must be contained in Town of Lucas trash bags. The bags are available for $2.00 each (price as of 9/1/23) at Bob & Steve’s BP Station in Knapp, Countryside Valley Bar (formerly Torch's), and the Kyotes Den Bar & Grill. These businesses are distributing the bags as a service to the community; all proceeds from the bag sales are applied to the Town’s cost of the trash disposal.
Spring and Fall Cleanup Days: Some items that do not fit in Town of Lucas trash bags may be disposed of during scheduled Spring or Fall cleanup days.
