Recently we have received an abundance of hypodermic needles and syringes in recycling bins. These are NOT recyclable and placing them in your blue recycling carts puts our employees' health in jeopardy as we have had workers stuck when handling your recyclables.
If you require the use of home medical devices such as syringes, these MUST be placed in your garbage in a heavy plastic sealed container (such as a coffee grounds canister or detergent bottle) and marked as such. Once again, these can NEVER be placed in your recycling can. Failure to comply will result in your blue cart being pulled from the residence and recycling services discontinued.
