To get the discount drop off enough acceptable recyclable material to fill a small office trash can per person. Bringing more is always better. Acceptable materials are along the same guidelines as the City Of Lufkin normal recycling like you would put in your blue bin at home. Cardboard, Paper, Aluminum Cans, Steel Cans, and Plastic 1 and 2. You don't have to separate, but they ask that they bee clean with no food particles or other contaminates inside.  Do not bring any glass.
