Why Be Better Recyclers?
Everyone knows that recycling is good for the environment. But not everyone knows what goes where. And this is causing problems.
- Our recycling and organics programs are designed to manage specific items: bottles, cans, paper, cardboard, plant debris, and food.
- Putting trash in the recycling or organics containers contaminates them.
- Up to 25% of recycling is landfilled because there is too much trash in it.
- Putting food scraps, food-soiled paper, and yard debris into the trash and not the green cart contributes to greenhouse gas emissions.
