Going green

Employees at the Materials Recovery Facility sorted truckloads of refuse dumped into recycling bins in Canton Township and delivered to the facility. Multiple contaminants were found, officials said, including wall paneling, food, plastic bags, construction materials and metal tools. Officials cautioned that these items should not be placed in recycling carts and recyclable materials include: cardboard, paperboard, junk mail, office paper, plastics #1-8, steel cans, tin cans, aluminum cans, pots and pans, clear glass, phone books, plastic bags, newspapers, magazines, and catalogs. A recycling bin can be purchased from the Canton Township Clerk's office for $10.
