Our county legislator, Don Boyden, has raised the warning at several town board meetings about the losses being generated by the Cortland County Recycling Center.
One of the key drivers of these losses is the improper recycling at home. If county residents send the wrong materials, then extra work is involved for additional removing or sorting, thus increasing the cost. Or worse yet, the materials are deemed “contaminated” because of a mix of good and bad materials and a whole batch ends up at the landfill.
You can do your part to help keep our taxes down by recycling wisely. Please see the available chart to help determine which materials get recycled and which ones don’t. You can download and print a copy of this chart from the town website: https://www.preble-ny.org/index.php/recycling.
