Amber prescription pill bottles are not allowed in residential or transfer station recycling

Ridwell collects them (must have #5 inside the recycling symbol) as a featured category. If you know someone with a Ridwell subscription, save up your bottles (remove label if possible or black out personal information) and ask if you can contribute to their collection.

Non-prescription, over-the-counter pill bottles (empty) are accepted in curbside recycling if they are bigger than 4 ounces. If smaller, throw in the trash because they are too small to make it through the sorting process at the MRF (materials recovery facility, or “murf”), where our recycling is sorted and baled.
