Recycling Contamination Is Real, And We Need Your Help

As you’ve probably heard by now (from us, in the news, talking with friends), there’s a bit of a crisis in the recycling industry.

We need your help!  We’re sharing this recent letter from our recycling facility, E.L. Harvey, in Westboro, to help keep full transparency:

Harvey_June2018_001

The cost of recycling has already jumped above our disposal cost for trash, and E.L. Harvey has notified us that they will be assessing contamination charges if our customers do not keep their recycling clean.

Do your part to follow the above Recycling DO’s and DON’Ts to help keep our recycling as clean as possible so your contaminated recycling doesn’t make everyone else’s end up in the trash!

Remember – When in Doubt, Leave it Out!

Thank you for being valued customers and helping us tackle this recycling crisis!
