What can I recycle?

Only the following items should be placed in your recycle cart: metal cans, flattened cardboard, plastics (water, soda, juice and cleaning bottles, and plastic jugs) glass bottles, cartons and paper. If you are unsure an item belongs in the recycle cart, please place it in the garbage cart.

Place recycled items directly into your blue recycle cart. DO NOT place recycle material in a plastic bag of any kind. The Town of Fuquay-Varina will not empty blue recycling bins if materials are placed in a plastic bag of any kind or contain non-recyclable material.
