FAQ

Q: Where are you located?

Q: Can we drop off recyclables anytime in the drive through?

Q: How can I purchase recycled materials?
A: Good question. Look for products with post-consumer recycled content. Also the Green Seal and Scientific Certification Systems are two organizations you can refer to for recycled materials.

Q: How do I identify plastic recyclables?
A: There is a number inside the recycling triangle on the bottom of the bottle, numbers 1 – 7, which stand for different types of plastic.  Sometimes a letter abbreviation is below the number symbol.  #1 can be PET or PETE; #2 is HDPE.  #3-7 are types of plastic that we do not have a market for, so in this area, they are trash.

Q: Do you just accept plastic bottles, or a variety?
