BOTTLES – THROW OUT YOUR CAPS! Please do not recycle soda bottles with caps on. A human musst then twist off your bottle cap then dispose of said cap in the refuse. Bottle Caps are NOT recyclable. If you leave your caps on, this translates into labor and time which then translates into more expensive costs which is then transferred to the consumer. Did you know that in 2017 over 350 labor hours were spent removing caps from bottles?
Also – DO NOT dispose construction materials in Town Dumpsters. TOWN DUMPSTERS ARE NOT CONSTRUCTION BINS. It only takes one person to ruin the convenience for us all.
