With elections over, wondering what to do with that political sign in your yard?

Election signs that are made of paperboard (single-layer cardboard) can be separated from the metal wicket and placed in your curbside recycling bin.

Corrugated Plastic (Coroplast) campaign signs or vinyl signs should be thrown away in the trash or can be reused for crafts.

Plastic sleeve-style signs (made of polyethylene plastic, #2 or #4) can be recycled at the Timberline Recycling Center (1903 S. Timberline Road). Grocery stores and many retailers also accept plastic film signs. Any labels, stickers, and metal wickets should be removed from the signs before recycling.

Metal sign “wickets” can be recycled at local scrap metal companies, or taken to the Timberline Recycling Center Hard-to-Recycle Materials Yard ($5 entry fee applies).
