Recycling Tip

July Recycling Tip: Take your recycling efforts up a notch and separate your aluminum cans!

For years, we’ve been collecting mixed recycling, including aluminum cans (beer and soda) being mixed in with other recyclable materials. While it will get processed on the mainland, how about taking one more easy step that will benefit our own Orcas Recycling Services. If you separate those aluminum cans, you can drop them off at NO charge in the specially marked bins. When aluminum cans are separated out, we are able to sell the commodity for the highest value of any recycled material.
