#AimToKnow #TuesdayTip
Shredded paper is not accepted in our Aim To Be Green recycling program. If the item is smaller than the size of a credit card it will be too small for the equipment inside the Materials Recovery Facility (MRF).
You can however drop off your shredded paper directly at our recycling center at 1518 E. Co. Rd. 113
Green Springs, Ohio 44836 during working hours Mon-Fri 8 AM - 4 PM. When dropping off shredded paper at our recycling center have it in a clear plastic bag and place the bag into the "Shredded Paper Only" box.

Shredded paper can also be composted quite easily and is a great carbon item to add to your compost pile.

#AimToKnow #TuesdayTip

We no longer look at the number on plastics to determine if a plastic item is recyclable. The numbers are resin codes used by the plastics industry to identify the chemicals used to make the container. The codes do not always mean that the item is recyclable in your area. The only plastic that belongs in the Aim To Be Green recycling is bottles and jugs. If you don't want to throw plastic cups in the trash, take advantage of a mail-back recycling program like TerraCycle US which offers national programs. Or consider purchasing reusable or compostable cups.

#AimToKnow #TuesdayTip
When recycling it is important to #KnowWhatToThrow. Trying to recycle the wrong things leads to contamination of things that are truly recyclable and is costly to recycling facilities.
