Now that households and businesses are recycling, and in many cases segregating organics for composting, trash day has become more complicated. The facilities that process recyclables for market or that compost organics depend upon you to properly segregate your materials before collection.
When materials are improperly prepared for collection, an entire batch of compost can be ruined or recyclables processing equipment can be damaged.
To help you properly prepare for collections, we produce guidelines for recycling and compost in both English and Spanish which can be printed for attaching to your refrigerator, carts, containers, or distributed to your employees, tenants, etc.
