Recycling Top Tips of the Month!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING 

>>>TREX PLASTIC PROGRAM<<<<

***Until further notice all plastic must be dropped off at the
Township Monthly Recycling Depot ONLY***

The Recycling Depot is the 1st Saturday of every month in the Municipal Parking Lot


We receive MANY items that are NOT accepted by TREX. This results in volunteers spending MANY HOURS sorting through the collections. 


SIMPLE RULE OF THUMB :–

  • If it STRETCHES - ACCEPTED!
  • If it CRINKLES - NOT ACCEPTED!

Here are the Top 6 items we receive that are NOT accepted by TREX and should GO IN THE TRASH:

  • Plastic meat casing/packaging
  • Clear basket/gift wrap
  • Pet food bags/packaging
  • Cheese wrappers
  • Feminine product packaging
  • “Non stretchy” food/snack packaging

Please Note the following:

  • Plastic must be CLEAN
  • Chip bags are Terracycle not TREX. Please bring to monthly depot ONLY.
  • ⇩ALL paper labels must be removed⇩ (cut out) of all plastic mailing envelopes/pouches before sending in for TREX
