Here’s a list of items that are “Not Acceptable” and will not be collected in our Single Stream Collection Program

  • No Plastic Bags – When recycle items are placed in plastic bags it becomes very time consuming for the hard-working people hand sorting the material to break or cut open every bag, therefore hampering our ability to provide the recycle processor a good product that is easily sorted. It also doesn’t allow our drivers to properly see what they are collecting, our drivers are the eyes of our collection program, and we count heavily on them to clean the recycle stream to ensure we minimize as much trash and contamination as possible.
  • NO – Clam Shell or “To Go” containers
  • NO – plastic plates, forks, spoons or knives
  • NO – large plastic items such as toys, furniture, barrels, buckets, pails
  • NO – #3 thru #7 Plastics of any kind

  • NO – Ceramics – Pyrex – Window Glass or Windshields

COVID-19   –  Service Guidelines for Trash and Recycle Collections

To our valued customers, as we continue to provide essential waste and recycle collection services to our community we would ask that you please follow these simple, but important guidelines.

* Please bag all trash, we will not collect any loose trash.

* Place all trash in our dedicated Trash Cart or your Customer Provided Trash Can, this helps our route personnel by limiting the amount of trash/waste they come into contact with, bagged and containerized waste drastically reduces our contact and helps reduce exposure to everyone, including you.

* Pay extra attention to what you place in your Recycle Cart for collection. Our route drivers screen and clean our recyclables as they perform collection services and must pull out contamination items by hand, we would like to minimize their exposure of handling loose materials as much as possible.

* Minimize close contact with our route personnel and please maintain a 6′ safe distance for your own protection as well as ours.

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding, we will work diligently to continue with our important collection services, but we need everyone’s help in keeping our employees safe and healthy during these unknown times.

Thank you,

Dan & Bonnie Kirkpatrick
