FREQUENTLY ASKED RECYCLING QUESTIONS:

  1. Is it true that you are no longer accepting glass as a recyclable material?

    • Yes, due to factors such as: contamination, increased costs, limited market availability and others, the RRRSWA has made the difficult decision to discontinue glass (of ALL types) collection in recycling. Please re-use containers as you are able, but what you cannot, please place those items into your municipal solid waste (MSW or garbage) container.

  2. What about plastic bags and other "film plastic"?

    • Beginning November 1, 2018, we will no longer accept film plastic of any kind for recycling.  The best practice is to purchase and utilize re-usable shopping bags wherever possible. If you forget them, ask for paper or to have your groceries loaded back into your cart without bags. Keep totes in the trunk or cargo area of your vehicle to place groceries for the trip home. Other types of film plastic (softener salt bags, large plastic wrapping for mattresses, television and stereo sheathing, bread bags, etc.) will need to be disposed of in the garbage.

  3. Can I bring my old stove/TV/microwave, etc. to your facility?
    • No, please watch for information regarding the special collections held April-October each year in both counties.
  4. Can I put my garbage and my recyclables in the same container?
    • No, residents are not allowed to co-mingle their garbage with recyclables.  The carts are not interchangeable, so please keep garbage separated from recycling and in its own cart.
  5. What if I only have enough recycling to fill my cart once a month?
    • Collection will take place every two weeks, so place your cart at the curb whenever you have filled it (on your scheduled date). You are not required to put your cart out for every collection. 
  6. What if I’m unable to take my cart to the curb?

    • West Central Sanitation offers a “valet service” for this purpose. Contact West Central to make arrangements. 

  7. What happens if I sell my house?

    • Each cart has a chip embedded in it to identify the address of the user. If you plan to move, the cart needs to stay with the residence. 

  8. What happens if my cart “disappears”?

    • If your cart “disappears,” the cost of your cart will be assessed and billed back to you by West Central Sanitation. 

  9. I live in an apartment building, what should we do?

    • Apartment owners or managers should contact West Central to determine the appropriate number of containers and collection frequencies. 

  10. When is the best time to put my cart by my curb for pick up?

    • West Central Sanitation has advised that carts are placed BY 6:30 a.m. If snow or other inclement weather are not factors, you may put the cart out the night before to help ensure collection. 

  11. Will I still have to sort my recyclables?

    • There is no longer a need to sort, bag or bundle your recyclables into separate categories (paper & cardboard included). All recycling can be placed in the same cart. 

  12. What should I do with my shredded paper?

    • Shredded paper placed in the cart or drop box can break open during transportation and cause problems at the facility. If possible, bring your bags of shredded paper directly to the facility to ensure that this material will get recycled. Keep in mind that the RRRSWA has a secure document destruction service available at the facility so we can shred your personal documents for you! There is no charge for personal shredding and a nominal fee for businesses.

  13. Why are we doing this? (Single stream recycling)

    • Residents of Redwood and Renville Counties have been asking for a “simpler” way to recycle. Single stream provides an easier way to recycle. The new carts provide more capacity, more efficient collection, protection from the weather and provide greater privacy.

  14. Can I choose my own cart size?
    • All carts are 95 gallons, with no additional size options available. The carts were selected as appropriate for the average amount of recycling materials generated by a typical household in a two week period.
