Q: Does that plastic bottle go in the trash or the blue bin?
A: Always the blue bin.
Q: Do plastic bags go in the trash or the blue bin?
A: Never in the blue bin, whether empty or containing recyclables; however, you can recycle plastic bags at local stores.
Q: Glass wine bottles, where do they go?
A: They can go in the blue bin, but an even better way to manage them is to drop them off at participating redemption centers so they can be turned into new bottles.
Blue Bin Details
In Onondaga County, recycling often starts with a blue bin. It provides residents with an easy way to collect recyclables and put them out to the curb, and makes sure that those items end up in the right place.
And since single-stream recycling is now here in Onondaga County, it’s okay for recyclable papers and recyclable containers to go in the same bin. No more separating!
If you have a broken blue bin to get rid of, set it out next to your trash with a sign reading, “Broken. Please trash.” and your hauler will dispose of it for you.
