*The largest contaminant to recyclable materials.
- Paper clips, rubber bands, scotch tape and staples on paper need not be removed; however, you can further reduce waste by saving paper clips and rubber bands for future use.
- Place aluminum beverage cans in proper labeled containers.
- Cardboard boxes should be flattened and placed in a large central recycling container, or other designated location.
PLEASE THROW EVERYTHING ELSE IN THE REGULAR TRASH CONTAINER
