New Paper Recycle Bins!! You may have noticed the green and yellow bins located in the front and back parking lots at the Municipal Building. These bins are for you to place your paper, shredded paper, newspapers and their inserts, catalogs, and any junk mail that you feel comfortable putting into our recycling bin. PLEASE DO NOT place the following items into the bins, as the recycling contractor CANNOT ACCEPT: Cardboard, fiberboard, chipboard (ie cereal boxes, soda boxes, and other food containers) Text books or hard cover books Phone books (It is very hard to remove the ink from a phone book page.) Please be aware that failure to follow these instructions will result in the loss of the recycling bins. We have already been alerted that someone has thrown garbage and bottles into the bins. Once again, ONLY PAPER may be placed into the bins. Thank you!!!
