Cart #1: Yard waste is to be composted as it is not recyclable. The white bag is full of unknown items. All recyclables should be placed into the cart LOOSELY. The bag could contain anything from garbage to hazardous waste. The blue item is potentially a tarp or some type of animal food bag, none of which are recyclable.
Cart #2: Aluminum awning, or other structural metals. Those items should be placed in a scrap metal container. There is a scrap metal box available at either the Renville County Landfill or the facility in Redwood Falls. Please call for more information.
Cart #3: This cart has a possible chair (brown item in the back) and plant material. If this plant is a "real" plant, it should be composted. If it is a "fake" or plastic plant, it should be placed in the garbage as that type of plastic is not recyclable.
Cart #4: This cart contains landscaping plastic. This material is not recyclable (in our area) and belongs in the garbage cart.
Cart #5: Window blinds are NOT acceptable in your recycling cart. They are garbage.
There are several garbage bags (film plastic is not allowed in your cart) with unknown items: is it garbage? Is it recycling? Is it shredded paper?
All acceptable items in your cart must be loose and we encourage you to bring your BAGGED or BOXED shredded paper directly to our office at the Recycling Facility in Redwood Falls.
Cart #6: 75% of the items in this cart (that we can see) are NOT recyclable:
1. The Mountain Dew carton is not acceptable (see refrigerator/freezer boxes)
2. The black items (looks like filing cabinet pieces) are not acceptable in your cart. As with other types of metal, we have scrap containers ON SITE.
3. The black item sticking up. Not sure what that is, but it is not something that should be in the cart.
4. The DQ box is okay to recyclable as long as there is NO food scraps left inside.
Cart #7: This looks like a piece of play equipment. The cardboard in the cart is absolutely acceptable, but the pink plastic is not recyclable through the RRRSWA single sort system.
