We recently did a recycling audit for the area in Suncrest where we will check recycling bins for contamination ahead of the recycling truck.
Please keep our recyclable materials clean by leaving these materials out of the recycling bin!
Common “Oops” items”
Plastic packaging – refer to our tanglers video
Plastic bags – these cause a lot of damage at the sorting facility. Check out our video on tanglers
Composite containers – I.e., Pringles container
Black plastic – Optical sensors cannot read black plastic and there is virtual no recycling market for black plastic
