DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that recycling properly makes a big difference? While it is fabulous that we can combine our recyclable materials into a single-sort bin, it is very important that only recyclable materials go in the recycle bin!

Contamination (non-recyclable items being combined with recyclables) results in extra processing costs, which no one wants or needs!

Happily, there is a fast and easy resource available to help: ecomaine’s RECYCLOPEDIA. (ecomaine.org/RECYCLOPEDIA or our FREE app!) Simply type in the item you wish to dispose of, and it will tell you how and where to dispose of it!

As always, contact us if you have questions (pwinfo@scarboroughmaine.org or 730-4400) P

Please do what you can to stop contamination – it’s important!
