Help keep recyclables empty, clean and drythis holiday season. Recycle right all year long by rinsing out leftover contents of bottles, tubs, jugs and making sure they are dry before placing them in recycling carts. Residual food or liquid in the bin causes contamination of other recyclable items, making it more difficult to recycle and turn materials into new products.

Did you know, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that between Thanksgiving and New Years the amount of household waste increases by 25 percent? Consider using reusable gift bags whenever possible, but remember, gift-wrapping paper is recyclable, and foiled paper or Mylar wrap belong in the trash.

Looking to cut down on food waste this holiday season?  Remember that all leftover food scraps – meat, bones, dairy, tea bags, coffee paper filters, greasy pizza boxes and kitchen napkins can be tossed in the green bin along with your yard waste!.  Please, no baby diapers, pet waste, glass, or plastics.

Take a moment to review your 2019 service guides, and if you are uncertain about how to dispose of a particular item, contact your hauler. Contact Recology CleanScapes at 425-413-1555 or visit recology.com/maple-valley or Republic Services at 206-682-9735 or visit RepublicservicesNW.com.
