In the past few weeks the Department of Public Works received three separate notifications from Waste Management regarding contaminated recycle truck loads.
The most common contaminants are white, black or clear plastics bags either empty or filled with recyclable items, tanglers such as garden hoses, rope or twine, liquids and soiled items such as pizza boxes.
We as a Town need to be more diligent with what we put in our recycle carts or we will be faced with higher costs.
Please review the list of most common contaminants to further educate yourself and your family on what not to place in your recycle cart.
Thank you for your cooperation
