What about these things?

Recycling Centers and Curbside Programs see a lot of items that don't belong.  These things are considered contaminants and can ruin bales of recyclable materials, damage machinery and injure workers.

Some of these items may be recyclable but not in curbside carts or drop-off programs.  They must be collected separately and taken to a collection center for recycling.
