WHY DON’T WE RECYCLE GLASS?
Glass markets require glass to be very clean (zero contamination).
In addition, they require large volumes that are sorted by grade and color.
Participation at this time is not economically viable.
DOES RECYCLING JUST END UP AT THE LANDFILL?
No. All acceptable materials generated through the program are recycled.
WHY AREN’T WE COMPOSTING?
The Town and the Association have reviewed this method of recycling compostables and have decided that it is not an economically viable at this time.
