See what’s not being recycled

By | Announcements, Recycling

In the spirit of transparency, and in hopes of preserving our privilege to recycle right we want to show you what has been rejected by the York county Recycling facility and why!
This is a community effort we need to make to clean up our collective recycling.
If you are ever unsure – Trash it!
As much as we hate to say it, risking unrecyclable materials in the recycle bin puts everyone’s recycling at risk.  It is better to throw it away than to reject an entire haul of otherwise clean recycling.

All of the following hauls were rejected by York county recycling facility for contaminated materials.  Those materials were listed beside each slideshow.
If you see several rejected recycling loads from your community tell your neighbors to clean it up!

Biohazardous or chemically contaminated waste is NEVER recyclable.

Recyclables are sorted by hand, and for this reason alone you should NEVER dispose of materials unsafe to the touch.

Recycling Inspection in Tega Cay

By | Announcements, Recycling

One city in York County wants volunteers to inspect neighbors’ recycle bins

“If they can find the volunteers, Tega Cay could start a program early next year where volunteers inspect what residents put in recycle bins.

“It’s kind of a one last ditch effort before we cancel the program,” said City Councilwoman Heather Overman…”

Glass and Recycling

By | Announcements, Recycling

The facility that we bring your recyclables to has asked that we remove glass from our recycling.  This means that we, Signature Waste, can no longer accept your glass recycling.  The recycling center we use tells us the expenses associated with recycling glass outweighs the value of recycling glass to begin with.  Please read the following article it goes into detail about the need and the issues of accepting glass.

High costs and limited markets puts a crack in glass recycling.

If you are looking for alternative solutions to recycle your glass bottles and material click on your area below for a list of community drop of sites where you can bring your sorted glass recycling.  These sites are able to continue recycling glass because they do not have the added expense of sorting glass bits out of co-mingled (or mixed) recycling material.

Cart Placement

By | Announcements

Our drivers have noticed that carts are being placed with handles facing the road.  The handles need to be facing your house and the opening of the carts needs to be facing the road. Also please try and put 3 feet clearance between cars and mailboxes.  If your cart is setting up against one of those the driver will not be able to service.  Below is how the carts are picked up from your home and taken over the top of truck to be emptied.
