Recycling - What Can You Recycle?

 

Our customers are limited to what the recycling facility will accept. Please do not cross mingle items that are un-recyclable with your recyclables. The recycling system has changed significantly over the last decade and continues to change. Whenever possible, "reuse". It is 100% best practice to keep unnecessary waste out of the landfills and lessen their footprint. 

 

We will keep this list up to date.  *January 2022
