Trophy Club, TX (April 21, 2021) – Local governments across nation are teaming up to improve recycling efforts in the region. Recycling rules vary by jurisdiction based on collection and processing capabilities so please check with your local recycling service provider to ensure you are recycling correctly and helping our region avoid the common challenge of contamination - attempting to recycle soiled items or materials our program doesn’t accept.
Remember to keep your recyclables clean, dry, and un-bagged when depositing them into recycling carts or local drop-off centers. Bagged recyclables aren’t recycled because they can’t be sorted by the recycling equipment.
Utilizing reusable bags is more eco-friendly than getting single-use plastic bags when shopping. Plastic bags can only be recycled at participating retailers. If you can’t return bags to store locations, check to see if it’s okay to throw them away in the garbage as many use Waste-to-Energy facilities for trash disposal – turning garbage into renewable electricity.
When it comes to recycling at home, everyone has a part to play. Beginning with the way you sort materials, and ending with Republic Services’ efficient recycling pickup, they make sure Trophy Clubs’ recyclables are handled properly for a cleaner environment.
Follow these simple guidelines to become a better recycler. Working together, we can make sure recyclable materials don’t end up in our lakes and landfills
Contamination increases recycling costs and degrades the quality of materials, reducing the ability of the materials to be recycled. Help contribute to the success of our recycling program by reviewing what can and cannot be recycled by visiting the Republic Services recycling webpage.
