Plastics Recycling

Effective July 1, 2020 The only plastics accepted for recycling will be #1 & #2 plastic bottles and jugs

Why just bottles & jugs (#1 & #2)?

  • What can be recycled is driven by markets. When markets are not available in certain regions of the country, some materials can’t be recycled. Currently, there are no viable markets for plastics, other than #1 and #2 bottles and jugs.
  • Markets may be available in other regions but the costs of transporting materials long distances outweigh the benefits of recycling.
  • By focusing our efforts on collecting what can be recycled in the current markets, we can still make an impact and maintain our program.
  • Contamination (placing unacceptable materials in the recycling containers) is what hurts recycling the most. Please help fight the contamination problem by only recycling the materials that are accepted in our program.
