Single-Stream recycling is a program that allows all recycled materials to be mixed, saving storage space and making disposal easier by dumping it in one container. Sorting will take place off site. The Transfer Station is now using a compactor for Single Stream Recycling. All recycled materials will go in the compactor, including cardboard and glass that is recycled.
The goal is to make recycling so easy everyone will participate. The following materials can be dumped together:
- Plastic containers
- Junk mail
- Flattened cardboard
- Phone books
- Beverage cartons
- Steel and aluminum cans (not crushed)
- Glass bottles
Please Note: No plastic bags or Styrofoam! Please make sure that all your recyclables are rinsed out and free of food waste! Thank you for your patience with this.
