Recently clothing, paint cans, fake Christmas trees, food items, and wood were dumped in the recycling (blue) bins.
The Town of Kindersley shared that there has been multiple instances where recycle loads have been contaminated by garbage that doesn’t belong in them and according to Loraas, it has been getting worse in Kindersley.
If you are unsure about what can and cannot go into your recycling bins, please give Loraas a call or view the recycling & garbage section on the Town of Kindersley website.
Things that you can place in your recycle bin include: cardboard, household aluminum and tin, mixed paper, and plastics with #1-7 recycling symbol. Please do not put food contaminated items in recycling (example: pizza in pizza box).
