Ins and Outs of Recycling
Contaminants cause the rejection of tons of recyclables every year, which increases the cost of recycling.
The Top Three Contaminants are:
- Plastic grocery bags
- Take-out pizza boxes
Other contaminants include:
- Hard cover books
- Light bulbs
- Cookware (ceramics, plates, cups)
- Window / mirror glass

Please do not put these in your recycle bin, and remember:
