I already take my recycling to a Collection Center

The blue can is for more than just CRV material. We encourage residents to continue to take their CRV material to a facility if they want and it is cost effective for them to do so. 

Items such as soup and vegetable cans, clean aluminum foil, metal pie tins, cooking oil bottles, detergent containers, bleach containers, shampoo bottles, dishwashing liquid bottles, milk jugs, food packaging, rigid clamshells are not redeemable at recycling centers but can still be placed in your home recycling container and taken to a center for processing. 

Note: All containers must be rinsed of residue or wiped out.
