Don't Recycle This

Things we cannot accept at this time:

1. Plastic bags are unacceptable because they get caught in the machinery at the recycling facility.  Many retail locations accept plastic bags for recycling.

2. Mixed plastics: clam shells and other plastics including compost-able bio-plastics that are not bottles or tubs.  There are no markets for these materials.

 

3. Hazardous materials: Petroleum product, pool chemical, and pesticide containers.  Residue in these materials affects the recycling process.

4. Polystyrene foam (Styrofoam).  Egg cartons and foam trays can be recycled at Publix.
