RECYCLE-RECYCLE-RECYCLE-RECYCLE
July 23, 2015


 

Did you know it is the law?

You must recycle.

 

Local trash haulers have received notice that they will randomly be inspected at transfer stations for complacence regulations for recycling.  If recyclable materials are mixed in with trash/garbage, the hauler will be subjected to a fine, up to and including the loss of his hauling permit.

 

Please do your part and bag your recyclables separate from your trash/garbage.  There is no need to sort recyclables, as they can all go together in one bag.

 

Remember, recycle, it is the law!!!
