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”
❌Aluminum foil/pan
❌Plastic packaging – refer to our tanglers video
❌Styrofoam
❌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
