NO PLASTIC BAGS IN RECYCLING

03/24/2016

URGENT NOTICE:  NO PLASTIC BAGS IN RECYCLING!  

Your cart will not be emptied if Waste Management, our solid waste contractor, sees plastic bags!! 

Please DO NOT PUT PLASTIC BAGS in your recycling cart! Throw everything in loose - bottles, cans, paper - as long as it's dry and fairly clean - it can all be sorted at the plant.  But plastic grocery bags, garbage bags, or any other plastic bags can clog the sorting machines and SHUT DOWN the ENTIRE recycling plant!  If drivers see plastic bags in your cart, they'll leave a notice that they could not pick up your cart. KEEP OUT PLASTIC BAGS! Throw everything in loose.

What can you recycle? Please see this Recycling Poster and hang on the fridge or read more in this easy-to-use Recycling Guide. If your family recycles so much that you need a second cart, please call us at 919-553-5002.

Interested in recycling electronics?  There are more options in our area than you think.  By law, you are not allowed to throw electronics in the garbage. Check out your alternatives to clear out the clutter!
