Did you know that you can recycle staples? It is amazing how many staples that are thrown away during the course of a day! We started collecting staples in a small metal can in my office, and about 4 years later we now have a full can of staples that can now be recycled! You can collect small metal items (staples, screws, Bolts…) in a can and tape the top so that they don't spill out and place them into your recycle bin.
|Styrofoam is now being accepted at our Drop Off Center
You can now drop off the following items:
Cups and takeout containers
Rinsed meat trays
Food trays/lunch trays
(No Styrofoam peanuts)
All items must be rinsed.
For businesses, being wasteful can also mean wasting money. Implementing a recycling program
can help reduce your waste and increase your bottom line.
