Accepted & Not Accepted
What Makes It Recyclable?
There are two factors that determine if something is recyclable in your Curb It! cart:
- It can be sorted: The recycling sorting facility has a process to separate the material from the others.
- It can be sold: A manufacturer has a demand for the product and the ability to reuse it.
Metro Waste Authority works continually with its partners to determine if new materials can be included in the program. Other communities around the U.S. have different products that are accepted and not accepted based on the factors above.
