PREPARE YOUR PLASTICS FOR COLLECTION
WHAT TO DO
WHAT TO DO
1. KEEP YOUR PLASTIC OUT OF YOUR REGULAR GARBAGE
Plastic bottles, plastic containers, plates, utensils and even plastic shopping bags can be recycled. Use a clear garbage bag (available from Rotoplastics; 674-8265), other transparent bag or a container of your choice to collect plastics separately from your other household waste.
2. REMOVE CAPS AND COVERS
A bottle and its cap are made of different types of plastic. Your separation of caps from bottles saves processing time at the plastic sorting facility.
A quick rinse of your plastics to remove remainders of food helps to prevent germ and pest infestation. Dirty plastic cannot be processed, and will end up at the dump.
Please help increase the efficiency of waste collection by crushing bottles and containers before disposal. Bins will hold four times more crushed than uncrushed containers.
5. BRING IT
FOR THOSE LIVING EAST OF POS
Please take your plastics to RECYCLING IN MOTION- 6 Maingot Street, Champs Fleurs (call for details and directions: 678-6786). OR if you have a large volume of plastic bags (e.g. you and your neighbours have been collecting), call RIM and they will collect.
N.B. They will only collect plastics stored in the clear garbage bags. They need to ensure that only plastics are contained in the bags.
THOSE LIVING SOUTH OF POS
Please contact Piranha Plastics for collection and details on the kinds of plastic they collect.
Please help to educate by spreading this information to your friends, co-workers, neighbourhood schools and businesses.
