Recycle Right! It’s extremely important to make sure that only recyclable items end up in your recycle bin.
When non-recyclable items are placed in the bins and intermixed with recyclable items, the collection becomes contaminated. The process to separate these items is time-consuming and expensive. These costs continue to build as more and more non-recyclable items are placed in the recycle bins each week. We all must do our part to only put in the bins items that are recyclable.
So what can be recycled? Paper, cans, boxes, plastics and glass can all be recycled. You can even combine them all in your recycle bin thanks to the commingled recycling process that Parks and Sons use. If you keep out regular trash items like diapers, plastic bags, yard clippings, etc. it will be easier to process the collection. Recycle bins that contain regular trash are costly to dispose of due to the separation process needed for the items. More information about the do’s and don’ts of curbside recycling can be found here:
