Time to talk about:


Grass clippings, brush, and other yard waste can contaminate and lower the value of other recyclables like plastics, metals, and paper. 

Yard waste has to be collected by itself and then mulched, composted, or otherwise recycled at a special facility.  



Cardboard is one of the key components of our supply chain and can be recycled up to 7 times!

To Recycle Right, cardboard boxes should emptied, flattened, and any tape should get pulled off and go in the trash.
