Paper, Cardboard, Containers and Cans

Recycling saves money; provides local jobs and improves our public health by reducing carbon emissions and conserving natural resources. The biggest problem facing the recycling industry, right now, is contamination caused by the wrong items being thrown in to recycling carts and bins. “Wishful” recyclers often include items that cannot be recycled such as used diapers, clothing, food and cell phones. Please help keep our single stream clean. Info: (703) 257-8252.
