Is Your Recycling Contaminated?

When non-recyclable items end up in our recycling, they have the potential to turn the entire load into trash. This is called recycling contamination. Currently, DeSales is experiencing high levels of trash in our recycling, which means we’re sending otherwise recyclable materials to the landfill. It also means we’re spending additional disposal costs.

Remember, recycle all empty bottles, cans, paper, and cardboard. Please take EXTRA care to keep all plastic bags, food, and liquids out of the recycling bins and dumpsters. Thank you for your cooperation!
