Recycle Well – How to avoid “Wish Cycling”

The practice of tossing items into your single sort container and hoping they will be recycled is being called “wish cycling”. These items cause issues for our sorters, machines and end up as waste that we cannot process. In order to become a better recycler, let’s look at the TOP 10 offenders that should not end up in your recycle container:

  1. Plastic Bags
  2. Food Pouches
  3. Loose, Shredded Paper
  4. Drinking Glasses and Window Glass
  5. Needles
  6. Ceramics
  7. Electronics and Batteries
  8. Garden Hoses
  9. Extension Cords
  10. Loose Bottle Caps – keep them on the bottles.

Let’s work together to recycle better. If you have any questions, please call our customer service representatives at 952-469-2239 and they would be glad to help.
