Start small - audit your household and start recycling the one material you produce most. Then when you are comfortable, begin with another material. You can use cans, boxes, or bags inside of the bins to hold your materials, separately. The City of Cortez allows residents to have two of our collection bins. You may also set out an additional container for recycling, but it needs to remain separated, and preferably labeled as “Recycling” so our refuse collectors don’t throw them away.
