*Please be sure to contact Moring Disposal to ensure there is recycling collection in your area.
Recyclables should be placed at the curb the evening before your pick up day. All residences must have a recycling bin at the curb to help the driver identify your stop for recycling collection that day. In the event that you have more recyclables than your bin will hold, simply place excess items in a separate bag or container next to your bin. When using anything besides a recycling bin be sure to clearly mark for recycling. Additional recycling bins are available at the Freeport Recycling Center or from Moring Disposal.
Newsprint can be stacked on the bottom of the bin with all other material comingled on top. Please do not dispose of plastic bags in your recycling bin or use them to contain excess recyclable items as these contaminate the recycled material. Styrofoam and blister packaging are also not recyclable and should be set out with your trash. Contact Moring Disposal with questions regarding details of the specific program in your community.
