Are you Wish-Cycling?

Wish-Cycling is putting non-recyclables into the recycling bin, hoping they will be recycled. As a result, Wish-Cycling costs more in labor and machinery to sort out the non-recyclables and dispose of them in the landfill.  It contaminates the load of recyclables and makes it harder to process and market the recyclables.  Please kōkua, read the signs and recycle properly.

NPR produced a video on the state of recycling in America (April 2021). We highly recommend viewing it to see what our community faces when it comes to diverting waste from our landfill- NPR: IS RECYCLING WORTH IT ANYMORE?
