Dirty Dozen Recycling Contaminants
Below is EcoCycle's Dirty Dozen hit list of the worst recycling contaminants that should not go in the recycling bin.

One of the challenges to single-stream recycling is the increase in contamination - folks tend to get a little recycling happy, tossing additional items into the bin. But, sending non-recyclable materials jeopardizes the success of the whole program.

Please help make single-stream recycling a success by keeping these materials OUT:
  1. Plastic bags
  2. Plastic bags with recyclable materials in them
  3. Shredded paper
  4. Scrap metal
  5. Hazardous waste
  6. Diapers or other bio-hazardous waste
  7. Non-recyclable plastics
  8. Flattened containers
  9. Caps or lids on glass bottles or jars
  10. Liquids
  11. Ceramics or non-recyclable glass
  12. Frozen food containers
