Trash disposal fees are continuing to rise drastically. 50% of this cost is paid by you through your property taxes in your community with the
remaining 50% paid by you through your hauler charges or, if you use the transfer station, by the entry sticker fee. Recycling as much of your trash
as possible will save disposal fees.
RRDD1 has extended the hours to be more convenient to the homeowner. Non-stickered residents may use the facility without a sticker on
Wednesday evenings for recyclables ONLY, this provides you the ability to recycle items your hauler will not take. Residents with annual/semi-annual
membership to RRDD1, through the sticker program may dispose of their household trash and recyclables on Wednesday night. The upper level is
not open during this time.
WHAT RRDD1 ACCEPTS AS RECYCLED PRODUCTS
The following is an item-by-item review of the preparation requirements for the recyclables delivered to RRDD1. If your hauler does not pick up all of
these items you are still required by “District” ordinance to remove them from your trash and deliver them to the Transfer Station.
Clean corrugated cardboard, boxboard, and brown paper grocery bags may now be recycled together. These should be free of Styrofoam or any other
contaminant, such as plastic liners. Waxed boxboard such as ice cream, milk or frozen dinner must be put in with the single-stream items.
NiCad and rechargeable dry cell batteries SHOULD be separated and left in the battery hut along side of the office building.
Clothing, as well as all accessories (i.e., handbags, shoes, jewelry, etc.) should be brought into the recycling building and given to attendant. They will
inspect and make sure that things are bagged properly for depositing into the chute between the building and refuse compactors.
NEWSPAPER, MAGAZINES, JUNK MAIL, OFFICE PAPER AND BOOKS
Newspapers, Magazines, Junk Mail, Office Paper and Soft Covered Books may be recycled together. Blueprints and wrapping paper are not currently
recyclable, they go in with regular trash.
FOOD AND BEVERAGE CONTAINERS
Glass, Metal and Recyclable Plastics numbers 1-7 ONLY, Food and Beverage Containers up to and including 5-gallon sizes. Waxed Cardboard (juice
containers) straws and caps removed may be included. These items should be clean (light rinse) and labels may be left on. Do not crush or flatten the
containers, this makes the separation by the machinery at the Hartford plant more difficult. NO window glass, light bulbs, drinking glasses or ceramics
allowed! These and any broken glass containers should be put in the general trash. Returnable cans/bottles can now be included or returned for credit
at the point of purchase. MOTOR OIL and auto chemical containers of any kind cannot be recycled. No plastic bags or boxes allowed in single stream.
Aluminum foil, pie and cake tins should be deposited into the aluminum hopper to the left of the recycling building.
We accept automotive batteries.
We accept tire tubes; they can be deposited in the container by the auto batteries.
We accept leaves for composting. If transported in paper bags, the bags must be emptied. Leaves CANNOT be thrown in the trash.
Grass clippings and other organic yard debris CANNOT be included in the trash. We strongly urge you to begin backyard composing of this material.
Grass clippings may be deposited with the leaves for composting.
Because of their mercury content, these tubes are accepted for special disposal (NO broken tubes). We accept all tubes regard-less of size or shape.
Currently we are accepting all electronics. TV’s are deposited in the Bulky Waste area. Electronics are to be placed in the clearly marked “Electronics”
shed along the back side of the office building/garage. Please remove all batteries and cut the cords and place these in their proper recycling area. If
unable to do so, please see attendant for assistance. Metal objects such as computer cases should be placed into the orange hopper next to the
electronics collection area.
We accept 20 lb. tanks which typically come from gas grills.
We can accept oil based and latex house paint and stain for disposal. We CANNOT accept solvents, strippers or thinners. These as well as other household
hazardous waste (HHW) products must be held for HHW day.
