What do I do with plastic bags/plastic film? 
Plastic bags and plastic film, also known as shrink wrap, should never be put in curbside or transfer station single stream recycling bins because they can jam equipment at the Intermediate Processing Centers that prepare recyclables to be marketed.  However, a number of participating retailers do have collection bins for plastic bags at their stores.  Most of these bags are sent to the manufacturer of a recycled composite lumber that is used for outdoor decking.  Better yet, bring reusable cloth bags with you when you go shopping.

Holidays: When a holiday falls on your pickup day, your pickup will be on the next day, and the rest of the week will be a day later. If needed, Friday pick up will be on Saturday. Monday holidays will not impact the pick up schedules for the week.
Snow: If there is a large snowstorm where roads are impacted so the recycling trucks can’t get through, the recycling schedule will get bumped by a day, as described for holidays above.Scheduling changes will be posted on Facebook as possible.
