If a recycling dumpster is "contaminated" with trash, the entire load must be treated as trash. Our recycling process equipment is not able to separate trash from recyclable materials. Since a recycling truck picks up recycling dumpsters from numerous locations before the truck is full and taken to the recycling center, if one container is "contaminated" it can mess up the entire truckload.
Help us keep contamination at a minimum. Become familiar with the items that will and will not be accepted for recycling. Make this information available to janitorial staff, cafeteria management and staff, teachers and students.
*Please note that all containers need to be emptied and clean before entering the recycling stream. Also, any materials with food residue can “contaminate” entire loads of recyclable materials. Please refrain from placing these items into the recycling containers.
