There have been a lot of issues with Recycling, and what can and can’t be put in your recycling bin each week. Here is a list of the items that can be recycled in our community:
- Cardboard (No pizza boxes)
- #1 & #2 Plastics
If the item you want to recycle isn’t listed above (in bold), it can’t be recycled in our community at this time. With many people wanting to recycle Styrofoam, glass, aluminum foil, etc. they are placing these items in their recycling bins and it causes the cost of recycling to go up.
If these items go in the recyling bin, someone either has to sort through the material at the recycle center to sift it out (which causes the costs to recycle to increase) or the entire collection will be thrown out and wasting the whole batch of recycled material.
With the cost of recycling increasing every year, let’s do our part to help keep costs down.
