Recycling Contamination

What is recycling contamination?

Anything other than what is specifically designated for each bin is contamination. Even recyclable materials, such as plastic and other paper products, can act as contaminants if they are disposed of in the wrong recycling container.

Why is this notice on my recycling bin?

If a waste hauler sees non-recyclable material in a resident’s bin, the hauler will place one of the notice stickers on the bin, letting the resident know that the bin’s contents that day were unable to be recycled.

Why is contamination bad?

It slows down the recycling process and can damage the sorting machines or endanger workers on the sorting line.

How do I dispose of my E-Waste?

Waste electronics can be brought to the Household Hazardous Waste Facility at 35 Firemen’s Memorial Drive in Pomona or participating retailers.

NYS Law bans the disposal of electronic waste in landfills and bans waste haulers from collecting it. It is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of these materials properly. As mentioned, waste electronics can be brought to the Household Hazardous Waste Facility at 35 Firemen’s Memorial Drive in Pomona or participating retailers.

For more information, please call (845) 753-2200.
