All your hard work may go to waste if you put your recyclables in plastic bags. Due to health and safety concerns, many of these plastic bags will not be opened, and the materials inside will be disposed of.
Please, avoid bagging your recyclables, keep them loose in your recycling container!
Commercial Customers: Please speak with your janitorial team about this topic. Often, they will stop using liners in your recycling containers if asked. If they say that liners need to be used to transport recyclables, please make sure their team opens the bags and empties the recyclables loose into your outdoor collection dumpster or cart.
