Recycling Tips

At Tuesday’s meeting, representatives from the Casella Waste Company gave tips to improve recycling efficiency:

• Caps of plastic bottles should be removed and discarded in the trash

• Pizza boxes should not be recycled due to soiled food contamination

• All plastic bottles that previously contained food must be thoroughly rinsed before recycled

• If a paper can be ripped, then it can be recycled

• Cardboard boxes should be completely flattened before recycling
