First of all we would like to thank all of you that have been using the recycling containers and recycling whatever you can to reduce our garbage. We encourage ALL of you to use this recycling service as it does have a significant impact not only on our garbage rates, but on our planet as well.
Please download and refer to the Mower County Recycling Acceptable Materials List and please USE THAT SHEET when you are preparing to deposit your recyclables. Please follow those guidelines and remember.
Absolutely No Plastic Sacks or Bags - If you use them to carry your recyclables, dump out your recyclables and either reuse the bag to haul them again or place the bags in the trash.
- NO STYROFOAM OR PEANUTS
- NO JUNK MAIL
- REMOVE ALL CAPS FROM PLASTIC BOTTLES OR CONTAINERS
ALSO IF YOU HAVE LARGE CARDBOARD BOXES, please take them to the Mower County Recycling Center which is extremely close by at 1105 8th Ave. N.E. Many times excess cardboard fills our garbage dumpster and is very inconvenient to all of the other residents. Again we thank those of you who are recycling and hope that those of you who are not will do so now.
If you have any questions please refer them to Mr. Weaver at 437-9551 and he will be happy to answer any of them that you may have.
