Q: Can the spiral containers that sugar and creamer come in be recycled with metal cans; and do the plastic lids need to be removed?

Yes, we accept “spiral cans” in our recycling program. Spiral cans have a thin cardboard body with a metal bottom and/or a metal rim on the top.

Examples of spiral cans include: coffee cans, lemonade mix cans, Pringles potato chip cans, peanut cans, etc.

These cans may be placed in your curbside recycling bin or brought to any of our recycling drop off locations and placed in the compartment labeled for “metal cans.” It is helpful to us if the plastic lids are removed.
