Did you know that one of the most common contaminants in
household recycling bins is carrier bags?
Many residents think they are
helping our bin crews by putting their recyclable materials in carrier bags.
Carrier bags actually contaminate the bins as they can't be recycled.
Please make sure you put any
recyclable materials in your household recycling bin (brown bin with grey lid)
loose to avoid any non-collections.

and can not be recycled.
