Apartment Co-Mingle Recycling Service

Attention: Apartment Tenants

Materials you CAN co-mingle in the container at your apartment complex: Except for shredded paper (see below), co-mingling requires no pre-sorting, tying, or bagging of accepted items — just toss them in! Below is a partial list of materials accepted in co-mingle recycling containers. Go to the Pride Recycling Depot page for a list of additional items that can be recycled at our on-site facility.

  • Plastic bottles (with the neck/opening smaller than the base; rinse; discard lid)
  • Plastic tubs, 6 ounces or larger (rinse out; discard lid)
  • Rigid plastic plant pots, 4” or larger
  • 5-gallon buckets (with or without handles; discard lids)
  • Tin and aluminum cans
  • Cardboard (flattened; do not tie)
  • Scrap paper, newspaper, phone books, magazines
  • Shredded paper (bagged in paper or clear plastic)

Glass and Motor Oil: Check with your Apartment Manager for information on glass and oil recycling.

Do not put these in any of your containers (garbage or recycling):

  • NO medical waste, including needles, syringes, lancets
  • NO wet paint
  • NO chemicals
  • NO oil
  • NO dirt, rocks, or concrete
  • NO hot ashes

Attention: Apartment Managers



Recycling container styles & sizes: For your recyclables, you can order front load containers or 90-gallon roll carts. Glass, bottles & jars are recycled in a separate roll cart. We will consult with you to decide which ones are best for your property.

Contamination: If your recycling container is contaminated with any material that is not allowed, it will not be emptied and will need to be cleaned out before the next recycling pick-up or we can empty as garbage for a charge.

Recycling Information: Please request enough copies of "Recycling with Pride" for all your apartment residents.

Safety first! If you have any doubt, please call us before placing questionable items into your containers. Some materials offer extreme safety concerns for you, our drivers, sorters, and the environment. Doing your part will help your living areas stay safe and clean. Thank you!

Do not put these in any of your containers (garbage or recycling):

  • NO medical waste, including needles, syringes, lancets
  • NO wet paint
  • NO chemicals
  • NO oil
  • NO dirt, rocks, or concrete
