Single-stream recycling means you can recycle glass, cans, plastic, cardboard, and paper all in one container. That means no sorting, and no hassle. At Advantage Disposal, we maximize your convenience by providing our clients with single-stream recycling containers. If it’s recyclable, just toss it in and we’ll haul it away! Our goal is to make recycling as easy and straightforward as possible for our customers.
Please be aware that while some types of styrofoam can technically be recycled, we cannot accept them in our recycling containers. Unfortunately, none of the area recycling processing facilities take styrofoam in this part of the country, so we are unable to accept this material.
Also, note that plastic bags and films cannot be included in single-stream recycling. That’s because these items can easily become tangled in the mechanical sorting equipment used to separate items at the recycling processing facility. This jams the equipment and can be quite problematic. As a result, we request that customers NOT bag/sort their different items. To recycle plastic bags, please drop them off at your local grocery store.
If you have any other questions or concerns about what—and what not—to include in your single-stream recycling bin, please don’t hesitate to ask. Advantage Disposal is happy to help in any way we can. Just give us a call!
