Recycle those old Election Signs
From November 14 to December 8, two of the city's recycling depots will be
accepting election signs for recycling, free of charge. Paperboard signs are
acceptable, including wax covered signs. Signs that have been laminated or
that are made out of plastic are not recyclable and must be put out for garbage

Residents can place their small paperboard signs (with the stakes removed) in
their Paper Recycling Box on their regular paper collection day.

Stakes used for holding up the signs can be reused for other things, such as
gardening or arts and crafts. If reuse is not an option, the wooden stakes
will be accepted at the depots for recycling, attached or unattached to the
election signs.

At the transfer stations, all signs must be unloaded by hand and placed in the
recycling bins.
