                                    Rabies is a serious infection of      • All containers made of steel, glass, and aluminum
                                    the nervous system. A person
                                    can get rabies after being bitten     • All plastic containers with the exception of #3 and #6
                                    or scratched by an animal that        • Paper beverage cartons (i.e. milk and juice gable-top cartons and
    carries the rabies virus. Fortunately, very few people get rabies       juice boxes)
    and most cases today are found in wild animals. If someone
                                                                          • Margarine tubs and yogurt containers
    gets bitten by an animal that has rabies, quick treatment can
    prevent the illness.                                                  • Take out and fruit containers (“clam shell” containers)

    Rabies is very serious and can make someone very sick —
    it is important to see a doctor if you are bitten by an animal,
    both domestic and wild. This is especially important if a
    person is bitten by a wild animal, such as a raccoon or a bat.
    But any mammal can get rabies, including household pets,
    such as dogs, cats, and even ferrets. Household pets can get
    a rabies vaccine to protect them and their owners. Animals           look for the code on the bottom of the container. If it is an item
    that are not mammals, such as birds, fish, turtles, and snakes,      listed and has one of the acceptable codes, then it is recyclable!
    cannot carry rabies.
    An animal infected with rabies carries the virus in its saliva, so
    if it bites somebody the virus has a way into the person’s body.
    It’s possible to get rabies from an animal scratch, too. People
    sometimes describe animals that have rabies as “foaming at
    the mouth.” This happens because the animal’s nerves no
    longer work properly and it can’t swallow its own saliva.

    What Should I Do If I’m Bitten?                                         In addition to the above items, below are
    If an animal ever bites or scratches you:
                                                                           items now accepted at the Recycle Center:
     • Wash the wound with soap and water for 10 minutes.
                                                                         • Spackle buckets (with metal handles removed)
     • Call your doctor or the hospital emergency department.
     • Give a description of the animal that bit you to your local       • Children’s large plastic toys (with electronics removed)
       animal control office so they can try to find the animal          • Rigid plastics (code #7)
       and test it for rabies.

    License and vaccinate your pet against rabies. Pets can              • Plastic bags of all types
    become infected with rabies through contact with rabid wild
    animals. Because of this, it is important that your dog or           • Containers that previously held petrochemicals or hazardous
    cat has up-to-date rabies vaccinations. Randolph Township              materials
    offers rabies vaccinations for your pets through our Rabies
    Voucher Program. Because a current trend in the United
    States indicates that there has been a higher incidence of
    rabies in cats than in dogs in recent years, rabies vaccination
    is especially important for cats. Cats left outdoors to roam
                                                                                   Recycling Center Hours

    indoor cats should be vaccinated, as occasionally they may
    get out and/or wild animals, such as bats or raccoons, may
    get into houses through open doors, windows, or uncapped             Wednesday – Friday
