Wishcycling

Wishcycling

Avoid Wishcycling. Make sure everything you put into the blue Recyclables cart/bin is recyclable. Items that are not recyclable cause contamination, can damage sorting machinery, and make it so recyclables end up in a landfill. Proper sorting makes a difference. For a list of what belongs in each bin/cart, visit here.
