Recycling Barrel- contaminants


Due to recent changes in the Recycling Process, recycling totes in violation of allowable materials in the barrel will not be picked up by Waste Management. This is due to the large amount of contamination in single stream processing. 

Please refer here for a list of contaminants that should NOT be placed in your recycling barrel. Specifically, we are seeing a large amount of plastic bags in recycling barrels. We appreciate your help in keeping our recycling free of contamination.
