1st Through 3rd Week

This is what we like to see: compost!

Cardboard in the landfill. Send it to be recycled—deposit cardboard in the blue bins.

More cardboard in the landfill. We think the relative sizing of the bins influences people to make decisions like this. Because boxes are often too big to fit into the "slim jims," the narrow rectangular recycling bins, people decide to chuck them in the landfill bins, which are much larger and more accommodating to large bulky items. Please break down your cardboard to fit it inside the proper receptacle. In the meantime, we will work to get the sizes of these bins set to more accurately reflect the volume of material that they should be receiving.
