[ARCHIVED] Friendly Reminder - Recycling Cannot Be Put Out In Plastic Bags

Plastic bags are the top nuisance at recycling facilities. They get caught in the machinery and workers have to remove them one by one. Our hauler has received complaints from the facility that our materials are brought to. Please avoid using plastic bags and simply set your recycling into a recycle bin for pick up. You can even use a plastic 32 gallon barrel for your plastics, tin and glass, you just need to label the container or pick up a RECYCLE bumper sticker at the DPW and make sure it doesn’t weigh over 50 lbs.
