What Can You Recycle in the South Bay?

In a perfect world, recycling would be straight-forward...everything would be accepted in every city. Instead, different cities use different waste management companies, which means the only way to know what's accepted in your city is to inquiry with the city.

If your city has information on its website about what can and cannot be recycled in that city, the link has been included below. If your city is not listed here, contact the city's public works department.
