To make their businesses profitable, they need at supply of recyclables that is free of contamination. Please make sure you put only these items in your recycle bin, and only if they are clean and loose (no bags): Paper and cardboard, plastic bottles and jugs, glass bottles and jars, metal cans, and paper/aseptic cartons.
