Transfer station employees want to remind residents to bring recyclables to the facility in clear bags or clear containers so employees can see what is being deposited into the Zero Sort bin.
Too much garbage is being mixed in with recyclables. By using clear plastic bags or clear containers to haul your recyclables, employees will be able to see what is being deposited before it is dropped in the bin. Thank you for your cooperation.
