*Recyclable Material Bins
GREEN RESIDENTIAL DROP-OFF DEPOTS:
These multi-unit bins allow for 24 hour drop-off of recyclable materials for residents. They are emptied by OSS Waste Services and the materials are then delivered to Sarcan in Melville for sorting. Please refrain from putting any form of glass in these bins because when they are dumped into the delivery truck the jars/containers/bottles shatter and the workers who hand sort the materials have a high risk of getting a shard stuck into their hand, wrist etc... If you have a large amount of glass jars/containers/bottles the Sarcan in Melville has a special bin specifically for these glass containers in their community drop off area fenced outside of their building.
Accepted Materials allowed in our bins: Aluminum containers, tin cans, beverage containers, milk cartons, plastic beverage bottles, plastic bags and any household plastic with a number 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 in the middle of the recycling logo, brown paper bags and tissue roll cores, corrugated cardboard and paperboard (cereal boxes), magazines and catalogues, telephone books, junk mail and envelopes, letter quality paper, gift wrap and packing paper. (NOTE: All containers/tins should be rinsed prior to disposal, plastic liners or windows should be removed from boxes and cardboard/paperboard boxes should be flattened)
Thank you for recycling and helping reduce the amount of waste entering our landfill!
