Recycling Right?

RecyclingRight

Attached is an information sheet on recyclable materials showing items that are accepted, as well as those that are not. As some customers are putting non-acceptable items in their recycle cans, we thought a user-friendly visual may be helpful. Non-acceptable items are considered contaminants, which jeopardize our ability to take recyclables to the Marshall County Materials Recycling Facility (current cost of $40 per ton). This results in a higher cost for recyclables disposal ($98.44 per ton plus $200 per load), as Waste Management must take them to their recycling facility.

 

Remember, if you have plastic containers, you can flip them over and look in the triangle on the bottom to see what “number” the plastic is. Only 1 & 2 plastics are currently being accepted due to the recyclables market. Also, please never bag your recyclables in plastic bags. It may be tidier for you, but plastic bags are considered contaminants and are an unacceptable material.

 

We will work to perform periodic cart audits and we will tag bins containing unacceptable materials with a tag and a photo showing the items that aren’t allowed. Please, let's work together to resolve this ongoing issue.
