ACUA Announces Recycling Changes

ACUA is announcing several changes to its recycling program at the request of our recycling partner Republic Services.

The most notable change regards plastics. Now, only #1 and #2 plastic bottles, jugs and containers that have necks smaller than their bases will be accepted. Examples include soda bottles, detergent jugs, ketchup bottles, and salad dressing containers. These items should be clean and dry. Lids and caps should be removed. This means that items like yogurt containers, margarine containers, etc. are no longer accepted.

Other changes include:

• No pizza boxes
• No paint cans
• No aerosol cans
• No shredded paper
• No wrapping paper or tissue paper
