Reduction of Contamination in Recyclables

Contamination of recyclables is now a major problem across the United States. Confusion by users at recycling receptacles at their homes, businesses, schools, parks, municipal buildings, and other public areas often leads to contamination or recyclables being thrown away in the trash.

With Recycle Across America’s standardized labeling initiative, this not-for-profit organization is dedicated to simplifying the act of recycling and helping the public recycle more and recycle right. Receptacles clearly marked with informational labels increase and improve the quality of recycle materials collected. This leads to higher profits for the recycling center and less contaminated loads sent to the landfill which extends its life and lowers costs. Check out Recycle Across America to determine the best labels for your community based on the local recycling markets.
