What materials do you recycle?

        We accept traditional materials such as paper, plastic, aluminum, cardboard, and glass, 
        and Hard-to-Recycle Materials such as electronic waste (E-Waste; TVs, computers, etc)
        
       
What constitutes a "traditional" recyclable?

        Traditional recyclables include paper, plastic, aluminum, cardboard, and glass. We refer 
        to these items as "traditional" because they are relatively well-known as opposed to, 
        electronic waste or Styrofoam.

       
What constitutes a Hard-to-Recycle Material?

        Hard-to-Recycle Materials are items that are less commonly recycled due to either a 
        complex chemical/material composition - i.e. electronics, vinyl binders
        
       
Can I leave my plastic bottle caps on the bottles?

        Yes, you can but, unfortunately the caps will likely not be recycled. Bottle caps are 
        generally made out of a different types of plastic than the bottles or containers. 


       
What do the numbers on plastic containers signify?

       
The numbers found in recycle symbols on plastic containers are known as "resin identification 
        codes," and are meant to identify the chemical composition of the plastic you are handling.

       
We currently accepts most plastics #1-7. 

       
Here is a list of the most common codes and the products they represent:
        
       
# 1 PET (Polyethylene)
        # 2 HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene)
        # 3 PVC or V (Polyvinyl Chloride)
        # 4 LDPE (Low-Density Polyethylene)
        # 5 PP (Polypropylene)
        # 6 PS (Polystyrene)
        # 7 Other (Assorted mixed resins)
