A statewide task force was formed in 2018 to address the issue of recycling contamination. Based on audits performed by the recycling industry, one in four items placed in the recycling cart is not recyclable which has led to increased contamination.
In an effort to help reduce contamination new local guidelines have been established. A Spanish version will be available shortly! *Please note, these guidelines are fluid and can change regularly, please check back!
Please review the items we have listed in the NO area of the guidelines. These items are causing the most problems for the recycling facilities. If we can get those items out of the recycling cart we will have improved the value of recycling significantly.
Thank you for recycling.
