What You Didn't Know About Recycling at the Needham RTS
Think you know everything about recycling at the Needham RTS?  Maybe, maybe not - read on, you may learn something new!

Some Surprising Recycling Facts:
  • Sure, they're plastic, but .... do not recycle plastic bags of any kind at the RTS - these cause serious problems at recycling facilities, jamming equipment as they getting wrapped around the machinery, and contaminating bales of cardboard and paper.  Plastic bags can be recycled at the supermarket.
  • You no longer have to get these bulky items into a yellow trash bag, because the RTS now takes large, rigid plastic items such as laundry baskets, trash barrels, recycling bins, lawn furniture, plastic children's toys, 5 gallon pails, & pet carriers - Just put them in the co-mingle bin.
  • Think your clothes have no life left?  Think again.  Worn out, stained, or ripped clothing, shoes, & domestic fabrics, that are clean/dry and not moldy, can still be donated.  The unwearable material is used for making products such as industrial rags or insulation.  Read more ...
