COMMON CONTAMINANTS

FOOD AND MOISTURE

As illustrated above, the most common contamination comes from food waste

Washing, rinsing and setting your items out to dry is essential.

We cannot recycle items that have food/beverage residue or items that are not fully dry.

Certain types of products and materials require deconstruction, before the above steps can be taken.

This means cutting open snack bags to wipe them out or using soap and water to clean food containers.

If your recycling is not properly cleaned, this will attract more bugs.
