After only three months of operation, the community members have filled the aluminum/tin bin twice, the #1 plastics bin once, and the newspaper bin twice. The program is seeing great participation.
During the past three months, local volunteers have donated time monitoring bins weekly to ensure a clean area around the bins and to remove some items inappropriately placed in the bins.
Volunteers report positive feedback and very little cross contamination. The #1 plastic bin has the most contamination; milk jugs, laundry detergent bottles, and plastic bags are not #1 plastic and cannot be accepted.
Lids on glass and plastic items are not recyclable and should be removed.
