Chamblee Sanitation provides single-stream recycling to its residents. Single-stream means that the resident does not have to sort the recycled materials. Residents may place all acceptable recyclable materials in a single container for pickup. In order to provide single-stream recycling, it is important that residents know what materials are acceptable and what materials are not acceptable.
Acceptable recycling materials are determined by the recycling carrier. At this time, our recycling carrier has deemed the following list as acceptable materials.
Newspapers and inserts
Paperboard (example: tissue and cereal boxes)
Magazines and catalogs
Paper egg cartons (with the liner removed)
Juice box, milk cartons
