Recycle Important Recycling Information

Canton’s recycling service, Green For Life (GFL), spot checks recycling carts for contamination. Contamination occurs when non-recyclables are placed in the carts which can include anything from food waste to plastic bags.

Recycling loads with contamination are rejected from the recycling facility. Canton is asking residents to be vigilant in their recycling efforts by keeping contamination out of recycling carts.

Not adhering to the recycling guidelines, along with the poor materials markets, is having a negative impact on recycling nationwide. Residents should place ONLY clean, acceptable materials in their recycling cart. 

Failure to comply with Canton’s guidelines will impact our program going forward through increased rates, restricted materials lists, temporary recycling bans, or a combination of any of these.

Acceptable items:

  • Household Plastics #1 through #7 (empty containers only)
  • Newspaper, Magazines and Catalogs (remove bags, strings and rubber bands)
  • Paper Milk or Juice Cartons (empty cartons only)
  • Junk Mail and Office Paper
  • Clear and Colored Glass (empty containers only)
  • Cardboard and Paper Bags (flatten cardboard and cut into pieces.)
  • Non-wax Coated Paperboard
  • Phone Books
  • Pots and Pans
  • Aluminum, Steel and Tin Cans (empty cans only)

Unacceptable items:

  • Plastic Bags
  • Styrofoam
  • Wire Hangers
  • Window Panes
  • Mirrors
  • Pyrex Dishware
  • Yard Waste
  • Food Waste
  • Electronic Waste
  • Paint, Pesticides, Oil and Cleaners
  • Waxed Cardboard
  • Needles or Syringes
