Inspection of Recycling Container Contents

Recycling centers can tell us which loads were contaminated with regular trash, so the City recycling inspectors will know in which neighborhoods to conduct inspections for excessive recycling contamination. Additionally, City inspectors will make periodic checks of recycling contents throughout the community. Residents with recycling contents contaminated with garbage will be issued a notice. Three notices will result in your recycling container being taken away, and you will be required to pay $6.26 per month over and above the regular monthly fee.
