Not in the Yellow Bin

There are a few items that should not be placed in the Recycling Bin.  Contamination in the recycling bin makes it difficult to sort the material at the MRF (Materials Recovery Facility).  In some instances it may lead to the entire truck load being rejected and placed in landfill.

Do not place these items in the Recycle Bin
Garden Waste
Food Scraps
Syringes
Plastic Bags
Ceramics
Plastics Code "other"
