Flatten cardboard boxes: Please remember to flatten cardboard boxes before putting them into the recycle bins. By flattening the cardboard we can put twice as much material into the recycle bins. If we don't flatten the boxes it defeats the purpose of recycling because the Loraas Disposal truck has to come out when the bin is only half full to empty it!

We do not accept Oil, Oil Filters or Plastic Oil Jugs/Oil Pails.
