Recycling Etiquette

No Illegal Dumping!!! – Illegal dumping and contamination of the recycling roll offs increases the overall cost to recycle and it jeopardizes many aspects of our community recycling program. From mattresses to paint to TVs to carpets, illegally dumped items at the drop-off centers have increased costs to manage the FREE, public drop-off centers over the past few years. Offenders intentionally leaving materials that are not accepted could be cited and fined.

Read  signs carefully – Misplaced materials contaminate recycling and will often result in recyclables being thrown away instead. It really does matter what you throw in the bin! Be a good sort!  Do NOT risk recycling contamination – read the signs.

Turn off your engine– the recycling center is a No Idling Zone. Idling is bad for our lungs and the environment. It also wastes gas! Turn your car off and enjoy the financial and environmental savings.

Styrofoam is NOT accepted – do NOT throw peanuts, ice chests, containers, cups… made of Styrofoam into ANY of the bins. Not only does it contaminate recycling streams, it blows around the recycling center and litters our walkways and surrounding forests. No matter what number it has, it is not accepted at any of the drop-off centers.

EMPTY liquids and RINSE food containers – Food contamination can inhibit the recycling process, increase health risks to workers, and even devalue recycling loads. Want to recycle? Simply pour out food containers and quickly rinse.
