Recycling Materials – Change!
Please note that as of September 5, 2017 we can no longer place plastic shopping bags, other plastic garbage bags, blue recycling bags, dry cleaning film, bread bags, frozen vegetable bags or plastic wrap into our recycle bins. Consider reusing your plastic bags for garbage or other uses, but please do not place them in your recycle bin! The organization that ultimately accepts our recyclable materials cannot process film plastic therefore it must not be placed in our recycle bins. The Chase Bottle Depot will accept these plastic bags for recycling. And the TNRD will accept plastic bags separately from other recyclables at its South Thompson Eco-Depot in Pritchard. We will add more outlets for separate drop-off for these types of plastics as we learn about them.
Thank you for taking this change in stride!
