Richmond Town Board

Recycling of Glass, Plastic, Aluminum, and Metal Cans

We have received a phone call from the Outagamie Solid Waste Center, which is the center that handles our Town of Richmond recycling material.  They have asked that we not promote the use of blue bags to segregate out recyclable material, but rather urge people to place their recyclables in separate bins for the hauler to place in the garbage truck separate from trash.  They encourage paper bags for holding newspaper and other paper material. Apparently, blue bags have caused a problem with their conveyor system and thus we are asked not to use them for separating out our recyclables.

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
