Saturday Recycling Tip: Four Ways To Do Single Stream Recycling Better

Download PDF

Single stream recycling simplifies how recycling is done by allowing paper, cardboard, plastic, metal & glass to be “co-mingled,” or in one bin.

A few reminders, however:
Single Stream Recycling Center 04-01-171) RECYCLABLES MUST BE LOOSE — never contained in a closed bag;

2) CARDBOARD should be FLATTENED;

3) LARGER PLASTIC ITEMS should be recycled in the “LARGE PLASTIC ITEMS” drop-off;

4) PLASTIC BAGS should be BUNCHED TOGETHER inside another bag – never loose.

These simple steps facilitate operations at the sorting facility, and ensure that the materials you’ve made the effort to recycle are actually recycled!
