Team Waste realizes the need for waste reduction.
When working with municipalities and residences, we encourage having curbside recycling available- if cost will allow. If cost will not allow for each home to recycle, we work with municipalities on community recycling drop-off locations. We currently have recycling roll-offs in several locations.
Items that are recyclable are the following:
- Food Boxes (without food on them)
- Tin/Aluminum cans (rinsed out)
- Plastic jars, jugs and drink bottles (rinsed out and empty)
- Glass is accepted in some locations
When working with business, we encourage recycling as a means of breaking down boxes and maximizing space or merely doing your eco-part and reducing the amount of trash that is being sent to the landfill.
Currently, recycling commodities are not worth as much as they used to be. It is not currently the cheapest option of waste disposal. It’s important to remember to recycle to extend the lives of landfills and this is how we promote recycling with our customers or people asking about having recycling.
