How much paper may you set out?

Recently I was out in the field, when two residents looked up desperately and asked me:
"Can we put out this much paper?"

There is no limit on the amount of paper you can set out for collection. However, please bundle or use a box with a tight fitting lid for paper that doesn’t fit in the paper cart.

As you can see, loose paper is difficult to load:

Have more questions about recycling and collections? Call 311 or visit our Division of Solid Waste Services website.

Remember to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle before you place items in the trash!
