The materials will need to be separated into the categories listed in the table below.  It is important for residents to keep the different materials separate to ensure recyclability.  Our facility is a source separated facility.  This means that the recycling collected at our facilityy needs to be separated into the individual commodity streams.  The recycling at our facility gets directly bailed and sold on the recycling markets.  There is no one to sort recyclilng that has been mixed together at our facility.  When recycling is mixed with trash it is trash.  Please pay attention to the different separations when using our facility and drop-off containers.
