If you have ever come in for a tour of the American Recycling Center then you have heard us discuss how problematic plastic bags and films are for Single Stream recycling processors as well as how there is virtually no public awareness of how they should be properly disposed of.
But the problems caused by bags extend much further than just the recycling center.
Today's newsletter is part one of a multipart series to supplement our recently launched social media campaign #PlasticBagProblems.
Each of these articles will focus on one of the biggest problems bags can cause and how you can do your part to prevent them.
For supplementary info on this topic, check out our social media campaign of the same name-#PlasticBagProblems by following us on Twitter @AmDisposal.

We have a saying here at American: “Know the NO’s”. That means that it is just as important to know what items CANNOT go into your recycling bin, as what CAN.
By “Knowing the NOs” and sticking to these resolutions you can guarantee you are recycling correctly!
Just say “NO” to these top 3 contaminants by vowing to NEVER put them in your recycling bin!
