Keeping your recycling bin clear of any contaminants ensures that we keep recycling centers operational and able to produce clean bales of these products. This in turn makes it possible to create high quality, new recycled goods. It is all connected, and it all starts with YOU!

Probably only when it stinks or you’re dragging it outside to be collected. Maybe when your dog tears into it to find that one piece of bacon you didn’t eat. Otherwise, it’s most likely the last thing you’ll find crossing your mind. Don’t worry; that’s perfectly normal.
But, that’s not the case for the crew picking it up.
For them, it’s simply what they do, just another part of their daily routine. They start before the sun rises, as early as 2 am in some cases, and their routes can be long, leaving them little time with their families after work.
If you’re quick enough to catch them, you’ll find them lifting and dumping containers full of waste or recyclables over and over again no matter the weather. They carry no umbrellas for the rain and sometimes have to trudge through deep snow and ice to get to your cans. Not to mention how hot it can get during the summer months.

Starting in Elementary School, Americans are taught the history of the American flag and how important it is to show it the proper respect. We do this by facing the flag and covering our heart during the Pledge of Allegiance or National Anthem, keeping the flag off the ground, and never simply throwing it away.
The first two are relatively easy to follow, but if you can’t toss your old, tattered flag, how do you dispose of it? It’s much more effortless than you think and there’s no better time to talk about it than on National Flag Day.

A newer addition to American Recycling Center’s team, Ana has come to learn! As a sorter, Ana’s amazing work ethic and thirst for knowledge has not gone unnoticed. She inspires those around her to ask questions and learn as much as possible.
This humble and sincere mother of one spends her free time going on walks with her son, listening to Bachata music, and watching Titanic. We’re grateful to have you working with us, Ana! Thank you for your dedication!
