Recycling

Below is a list of household items that are accepted for recycling.  If an item is not on the list do not put in the recycling trailer.  Many unacceptable items are being thrown into the recycling trailer, and it has become a serious problem.  If this continues, the Board of Supervisors will discontinue the recycling program.  Some of the unacceptable items most frequently thrown into the recycling trailer are glass, plastic bags, and vinyl.  Also, pizza boxes are not recyclable due to the food residue that usually accompanies the box.
