Recycle Right?

Improper Recycling Costs You Money

July 19, 2019

The city of Milwaukee and Waukesha County need your help! A lot of folks are now mindful of putting things into the recycle bin, but it's very important that the wrong things do NOT go in too!

According to officials at the Milwaukee/Waukesha Joint Materials Recovery Facility, every 1% of the wrong things in the recycle bin costs taxpayers over $30,000 a year. That's a lot of money wasted... on waste. 

To help folks understand what does and does not belong in the recycle bin, they developed a handy guide and poster you can download here. Make sure everyone in your household knows what goes in the right bin and you'll go a long way towards saving all of us a ton of money.
