Here is the list of items:

  • All glass bottles and jars – no need to sort by color or remove labels.
  • Old metal cookie sheets
  • Aluminum baking pans
  • Metal pots and pans
  • Plastic and metal hangers
  • Tin foil
  • Pie tins
  • Egg cartons (Cardboard / Paperboard only – No styrofoam)
  • Pizza boxes
  • Bubble wrap

The ECUA board approved a contract with West Florida Recycling, LLC in the spring and began picking up bulk recycling for its customers in June.  The City of Pensacola started glass recycling for its sanitation customers in April.
