We had Waste Management out to talk to the MUD about the recycling program, and the challenges they face in general.
Most people think that by simply putting what they think should be recyclable in the bins, that's good enough. But the truth is, it's not that simple. Part of the financial equation is how much they can sell the recycled materials for, and if the wrong stuff is in there, this lowers the price they can get at market, and raises the price of collecting it for us, the customer.
When they sell the material at market, the end buyers will sample the lot. They're looking for 'Contamination'. What this means is, they're checking drink bottles to see if they are truly empty or not. If they're deemed to have too much liquid in them, it's counted as 'Contaminated'. Same for pizza boxes with slices of pizza left in them. Or canned food cans that still have food in them.
So what are they are asking?
They're asking for residents to empty the bottles, rinse the cans, and to make sure that we're only putting items in the bins that should be in there.
Here is a chart of what they're looking for (and not). Some of the items might surprise you..... (clicking on the image will open a pdf)
