CONTAMINATED AND NON-RECYCLABLE MATERIALS CREATING PROBLEMS WITH AUTOMATED RECYCLING PROGRAM

 

Cheshire residents are reminded to not place contaminated or non-recyclable materials such as plastic shopping bags in recycling containers.  These items lead to additional costs or rejected loads.  Individual recycling bins that are identified to contain any non-recyclable material will not be collected by the hauler.

 

Please refrain from recycling items such as pizza boxes or unwashed cans or bottles, and return plastic shopping bags back to the store for recycling.

 

The success and cost effectiveness of this program is significantly impacted by the compliance of our residents.  Your cooperation and assistance is greatly appreciated.

 

A list of acceptable and non-acceptable materials is available here.
