Commingled Recycling Bin
Washington used to collect residential recyclables at the curb through a variety of methods. The three-bin sorting system was the first. While still in use in one area of the state, this method declined as all-in-one cart commingled systems increased in Washington and across the country in the early 2000s. More than 85 percent of Washingtonians have access to curbside recycling, and the vast majority are using a commingled system.
There are two types of commingled recycling collection systems: single stream and dual stream.
