Please understand that our letters are another tool to help you learn the most about your garbage and recycling services. Including material in your recycling bin that is not recyclable is the most expensive form of disposal there is. Global markets have become more particular about contamination, and including material that is not recyclable puts our program in danger of material being rejected. Some items such as sharps (needles) are a danger to Collectors and Recycling Center Employees. If you have questions about what is or isn’t recyclable, please call the Recycling Center at 641-683-0685.
