- WARNING - WATCH WHAT YOU RECYCLE
Town of Tilton & Its Contractor Forced to Enforce Recycling Procedures
Tilton, NH - In recent years, towns across the state have rolled out single stream recycling programs for their residents. This simple, user-friendly program has helped home recycling rates skyrocket. Unfortunately, this increase in participation has also led to a new high in contamination rates of the recycling stream. Contamination in the recycling stream refers to any material not listed as "acceptable" in the program, and is a big problem for the plants that purchase the material in order to recycle it into new goods. Because of these high contamination rates, processing centers are rejecting loads coming from communities, resulting in higher costs for disposal for the towns.
Because of this, EFFECTIVE MONDAY, OCTOBER 30, the Town of Tilton's contractor, Pinard Waste Systems, will NOT BE COLLECTING contaminated loads, ESPECIALLY THOSE CONTAINING PLASTIC BAGS OR STYROFOAM. Stickers will be placed on bins placed curbside that are deemed contaminated so that residents will know why the material wasn't collected.
If you have any questions about Tilton's recycling program, and what is acceptable, please visit the "Trash & Recycling" section of the Town's website www.tiltonnh.org and download the program brochure.
