As a reminder to all residents that we service and extend recycling services to. We have been getting a considerable amount of non accepted items in the recycle... containers. Below is a list of some of the things that we have seen and items that we cannot accept.

Not Acceptable

Bags of kitty litter
Pet droppings
Clothes
Garbage
Rope
Glass
Styrofoam
Plastic bags
Yard Waste
Artificial Christmas Trees
Car parts
Kids toys(that is not acceptable plastic and no metal motors)

Accepted Items

Plastic containers 1-7, (Bottom of container will give you the number inside the recycle logo)
Metal (aluminum, and tin cans)
Cardboard
Chipboard (cereal boxes)
Paper
Newspaper
Magazines
Office paper

We ask that you please adhere to this, as the center where we take these items have been now charging us for the recycle and rejecting loads. If we continue to have rejected loads, all our efforts in recycle will all go by the way side. This is something that we do not want for sure. We have been put in the position that we will have to start leaving recycle that is contaminated. We will NOT return for those items. They will need to be put into trash container and dumped as trash. There will be nothing left unless it includes non acceptable items.

Thank you for your cooperation with this matter.
