Your feedback and observations are an important component to the success of our recycling program. Recycling involves participation at many different levels. When mistakes happen, it is critical to resolve them swiftly to ensure people do not loose faith in the process.
Clean plastic bags and plastic film are recyclable, but only if placed in designated plastic film recycling bins. New York State requires most grocery stores to provide drop-off locations to recycle these materials.
Paper coffee cups are composed of "sheets" of paper and "sheets" of plastic. The process to uncouple these two materials is costly and as a result the cups cannot be recycled by our vendor.
Clear glass placed in UB recycling bins is crushed and used in place of quarried stone in construction projects.
