Let’s begin with some items that SHOULD NOT be placed in your recycling, but we regularly find mixed in with recyclables.
- Kitty Litter
- one time use grocery bags
- Black bags ( ALL black bags and anything in them will be trashed)
- Garden hoses
Having anything in a recycling load other than acceptable recyclable materials “contaminates” that load. “Contaminated” Recycling Loads are charged more at the final recycling destination. Therefore, keeping our recycling “clean” by placing only acceptable recycling materials in your blue bin, helps reduce costs for all facility partners.
