Q: What is single stream recycling?

A: Single stream recycling collection means that accepted recyclables in ACC can be collected mixed together in one container and collected by one truck. Primarily, we are looking for bottles, cans, containers, paper, and cardboard. This DOES NOT mean that trash is mixed with recyclables.
