									                                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!!! To all the residents who have been recycling their paper – you may
find the following data interesting:
