Just one piece of waste, or items in a plastic bag, can contaminate an entire recycling bin or dumpster! Recycling that is contaminated with food, liquids or non-recyclable material will also be rejected by the recycling facility and sent to the landfill for disposal. So please, recycle right and avoid contamination!
