[ARCHIVED] Recycle Changes Effective Immediately

Due to this change, the only materials accepted are cardboard, paper, aluminum & beverage containers. All containers must be rinsed. Items not accepted are the following but not limited to: hazardous materials, any plastic containers that hazardous material came in, paint cans, household garbage, diapers, medical supplies, paper plates and cups covered in wax, glass of any kind, and greasy cardboard pizza boxes.
