We've Got Some Good News…and Some Good News!
First, the good news:
You no longer have to stand at the Chatham Recycling Center looking back and forth from the bottle in your hand to one bin, then another, wondering all the while: "Is this a #1, #2, or a #3 through #7?? Oh great, I left my glasses in the car!"
Second, the reason for the first good news:
Plastics #1 through #7 no longer have to be separated!!
Many surveys show that 9 out of 10 people say they would recycle more if it was easier. Well, toss one more excuse in the dumpster because, as long as your plastic item has the universal recycling logo and a #l through #7, you are welcome to toss it in the bins marked "Plastics #1 - #7" at the Chatham Transfer Station's Recycling Center.
Just two minor requests please: rinse items to avoid bees and other critters;
and put caps in designated chutes.
More time for the beach now? You're welcome!
