[ARCHIVED] Recycling: Are you doing it right?

MARC Recycling Guide


  • Do recycle all empty bottles, cans, paper and cardboard. No glass in bins!
  • Do keep foods and liquids out of recycling.
  • Do keep plastic bags out of recycling.
  • Do recycle glass at Ripple Containers ONLY, located at Spring Hill Price Chopper.


  • Don’t bag your recyclables. Plastic bags and films get tangled in machinery. 
  • Don’t include food-soiled items. They can turn an entire load of recycling into trash. 
  • Don’t add sharp or dangerous materials like needles and electronics. They can cause injury to workers. 
  • Don’t toss in “tanglers” like rubber hoses and wires. They can shut down an entire recycling center. 
  • Don’t include bulky items like propane tanks or construction debris.
