Plastic bag recycling: Plastic bags and plastic wraps are recyclable—just not in your curbside bin. When you place these items in your curbside bin, they get wrapped into the equipment at the recycling facility. Workers have to stop the machines and climb onto the equipment to cut off the bags. Please look for the Store Drop Off label and take your bags/wraps with this label to your local store, often in or near the bottle recycling area.
Along the same lines, please do not place your recyclables in plastic bags. Once the bag reaches the processing plant, they will assume it is trash and remove it from the recycling line. You’re basically wasting your recycling effort by doing this.
Yard Waste: Please be aware that yard waste should not be placed in your trash or recycling barrels. Yard waste has been banned from curbside trash barrels since 1998. Grass, leaves and brush should be composted on-site or brought to the Granby Transfer Station.
