When storing your recyclables outdoors before pickup, be sure to keep them in a shaded area, out of direct sunlight. In the warmer months (and in drier climates), keeping metal cans and glass bottles outside with bright, shining light on them can actually create a fire hazard. Keeping your recyclables shaded ensures the metals won't get scorching hot and the glass items won't magnify sunlight and start a fire. Keep your home and those of your neighbors safe!
