The recycling market has changed nationwide. Our community is not the only one impacted by recent recycling changes. Many items once accepted as recyclable products are no longer accepted at the recycling plants. There is not a market for some products. We now can only accept the “Big 3” items in the recycling bins.
Focus on the “Big 3” and place only these items in your bin.
Corrugated cardboard – flattened.
Plastic bottles & jugs with necks – emptied and rinsed.
Metal food and beverage cans – emptied and rinsed.
Plastic or paper bags, paper, newspapers, magazines, junk mail, cereal boxes, wax paper, clear or Styrofoam boxes, and plastic bottles that do not have necks. Do not bag your recycling items in a plastic bag. The bags can ruin equipment at the recycling plant.
Other items that should never be placed in your recycling bin include electronics, yard debris, food waste, glass, large or small appliances, light bulbs, diapers, carpet or pads, hazardous waste, aluminum foil, wood or lumber.
