Recycling is a bi-weekly service provided to single family and duplex homes. MMWA accepts aluminum and metal cans, cartons, glass bottles and jars, cereal boxes, newspaper, magazines, office paper, junk mail, and cardboard, all plastic bottles, jars, and tubs and more at the curb. Other items such as plastic bags should be returned to a retailer, Styrofoam should be returned to the Saginaw Children’s Zoo, and tanglers, like hangers and cords, should not be placed in your curbside recycling. Let that intact piece of paper be recycled but don’t put that shredded paper in your MMWA curbside recycling!
