Recycling Contamination

For decades, Americans have been steadily embracing the concept of recycling as a means to help keep the environment clean, preserve resources, and beautify their communities. Times, however, are changing. As a result, it has become more important than ever for customers to adhere to recycling best practices such as keeping contaminated items out of the recycling stream.
