Here are more details:

Plastics – Take-out Food Containers and More:

Green Food Containers- are not to be recycled, they are sterilized and reused. Please return them by placing them in the bin marked for that purpose in the Center.

Plastic 3-compartment containers and their lids can be recycled and should be rinsed and placed in the recycling bins. If you can save and stack several of them, it will save space in the bins. Please do not return them to Culinary Services.

We hope this pic is helpful within our communities as we try to deal with the extra plastic containers that come with our foods.
The “Yes” part shows what we can put into the recycle (blue) bins in our trash rooms.
The “No” pic shows what we should put directly into the Trash containers. BUT SEE the #6 Opportunity Below.

AND if we can’t read or don’t see these numbers When in doubt, throw it out. This way, the contents of the blue bins have a good chance at the waste company sites of getting into the recycling streams.

Plastic bags -You can now deposit clean, dry plastic bags at the Center. The Recycling group will deliver them to the recycling bin at a local supermarket.

Plant Containers and Garden Debris

Plant Containers: Take plant containers to Parking Lot 6. Stack them to the left of the large shed. Remove soil and fit similar sized containers upside down on top of each other. No plant labels or trash. Containers will be taken by a volunteer resident to be recycled.
Garden Debris:  Recycle garden debris for composting. Put the debris in the brown bags stored in the AFSC shed in parking lot 6 and made available by the horticulture area representatives. Separate and bundle woody material.
