Single Stream Recycling is a system in which all recyclables (paper, plastics, metals, etc.) are collected and handled together, instead of being collected and handled separately. Single stream processing systems are designed to handle commingled recyclable materials, with recyclables separated for reuse at a materials recovery facility. The entire process eliminates the need for people to separate their recyclable materials and place them in separate bins for collection.

Single Stream Recyclable Materials:  include but not limited to cans (aluminum and steel); cartons (refrigerator and shelf stable cartons); glass (bottles and jars); fiber (mixed paper, box board and cardboard); and plastic bottles and jugs.
