Winter makes taking the recycling out much more difficult. Here are some tips to help you get through the cold and icy season. 1. Compact your recycling down to as small as it can get, whether it’s a can, cardboard, or bottles. You can crush it all for more space. 2. Clear your walkway to allow easy transport for your residential bins, so you don’t have to drag them through the snow and ice. 3. Keep bins on the curb and off the snowbank, so it’s easier when you bring it back in. 4. Wait until morning if there will be an overnight storm.
