Are You a Wishful Recycler and Don’t Know It?

Have you ever wondered what’s the problem with putting landfill items into your blue recycling cart?

Non-recyclable items placed in recycling carts tangled into a massive 2,240-pound ball that shut down the sorting line at the Napa recycling facility!

Non-recyclable items are a massive problem that increase the cost of collections and processing at Napa’s recycling facility. Plastic bags, fencing, cords, wires or hoses can tangle in equipment and the sorting line, causing equipment breakdowns and risks of injury to workers.

You can help avoid these serious problems by being sure to keep non-recyclable items out of your blue cart. Please review the items accepted in your blue cart here.
