City officials are working collaboratively with McPherson Area Solid Waste Utility (MASWU) to address concerns about local recycling efforts. Residents are encouraged to review the list of items that should NOT be placed in recycling containers including holiday wrapping paper, milk cartons, plastic bags and styrofoam. While MASWU encourages recycling for the benefit of the environment, certain items should be eliminated to prevent contamination in the single stream materials and to reduce recycling costs.
A complete list can be viewed at www.maswu.org/images/Unacceptable_Recycling_Material.pdf. For more information contact MASWU at 620.241.6559.
