What to Recycle:

Old soda bottles and empty milk jugs are no longer just garbage. They must be recycled. A new state law took effect October 1, 2009 that prohibits all plastic bottles from being disposed of in landfills. For several years, the City of Southport has offered curbside recycling to all residences within our city limits.

The following items may be placed in your recycling container:

  • Aluminum and steel cans (clean)
  • Newspapers, mixed papers, junk mail, magazines and paperboard (i.e. cereal boxes)
  • Plastic containers #1 and #2 (jugs, bottles, tubs and jars). No single use items accepted.
  • Corrugated cardboard (boxes must be broken down & flattened)
  • Green, brown and clear glass containers (clean)
  • Do not place items in plastic garbage bags or store bags.
  • Do not put plastic store bags in recycle bins.  Return bags to area stores for recycling.
