Recently AWS has noticed that there might be some confusion regarding recycling practices. It has been brought to our attention that items that should be placed in garbage bins are unfortunately being placed in the recycle bins. With garbage entering the recycling stream, the entire load is contaminated and creates an extra cost to dispose of the load which results in additional costs for our community. The sorting and processing of contaminated recyclables incurs extra expenses, which may lead to an extra fee on our monthly invoice.
We understand that recycling guidelines can sometimes be confusing so we wanted to provide clarity on what can and cannot be recycled:
IF IN DOUBT, LEAVE IT OUT
With your continued dedication and adherence to proper recycling procedures we can make a significant impact on reducing waste in our community!
Large amounts of cardboard or other recycling that will not fit in your recycling tote can be taken to the recycling bin located at the R.M. of Carmichael Office/ Shop at 30 Industrial Drive. Please remember to break down any large boxes.
