Draper City Recycling Information
There has been a change in recycling globally. The items we used to be able to recycle are no longer accepted. The only items that you can now place in a Draper City recycle bin are "the Big 3."
For more information on the recycling crisis, click here.
1. CORRUGATED CARDBOARD – This includes any size material consisting of a fluted corrugated sheet, like shipping boxes and packing boxes. Flatten all boxes and remove packaging items such as Styrofoam, peanuts, bubble wrap, and plastic liners. Do not put paperboard (cereal boxes, shoe boxes), newsprint or junk mail into the bin.
2. PLASTIC BOTTLES AND JUGS WITH A NECK – This includes water bottles and milk gallon containers. Rinse out any residue and put the cap back on. All other plastic material is considered trash. Ignore the numbers as they don’t indicate if something is recyclable. Do not put any other plastic items in the bin.
3. METAL FOOD AND BEVERAGE CANS - This includes all food and beverage cans made from aluminum or steel. Rinse out any residue. Do not put any other type of metal in the bin.
What items are no longer accepted in your recycle bin? Plastic or paper bags, paper, newspaper, magazines, junk mail, cereal boxes, wax paper, clear or Styrofoam boxes, or electronics.
Remember: “Don’t bag your recycling items in a plastic bag.” Some of us were used to bagging everything to prevent recycling items from blowing out on windy days. Any plastic bag of any kind, can ruin equipment at the recycling plant. Keep your plastic bags out of the bin!
Another thing to remember is that if your recycle bin is overfilled and the lid is open and the items in your bin become wet from snow or rain, the load may be considered contaminated.
