Recycling do's and don'ts

Submitted by Bill Spiegel

K-State Recycling greatly appreciates all your efforts in recycling. Please follow these do's and don'ts in our recycling bins.

Do's: all plastics, No. 1-7, all paper products, and aluminum and tin cans. Cardboard and glass, free of food waste (in separate bins).

Don'ts: Do not place any lab glass, lab Redi tip containers, and especially diapers and hardback books in our bins. These items are hazardous to MRF employees at Fort Riley and cause the entire load to be contaminated, turning it into waste instead of recycling.

Please download and print a Recycling Right poster as a reminder of what can and cannot be recycled, courtesy of Waste Management.
