Bridgeland – Recycling Contamination on the Rise

Recycling contamination happens when items are put out for collection that are not on the recycling collection list below. These items are not recycled. They are landfilled. This creates additional cost to the program, as well as lowers the amount that could be recycled. Please help by recycling properly. We appreciate your assistance with this. Have a great day!
