Yes, we are back in business full force at Renaissance Recycling!
Here are some helpful hints that will help us to process recyclables much quicker and help tremendously with our amount of trash:
Please remove lids from all bottles and jars (metal lids go in the tin can window), and make sure food is completely rinsed out of all containers.

Remember the idea is to reduce the amounts going to the landfill.
