Please post it in the area of your home where you collect your recyclables 

Why is it important to sort the items you bring for recycling?

  • We are paid for each product and we have to have it sorted to be able to sell it.  We are paid more for white paper ($90/ton)  than for mixed paper ($25/ton).
  • How do you know the number for plastics? Look at the bottom of the container for the “chasing arrows” in the triangle; the number is there!  Currently we can only recycle #1 and #2 plastic. 
  • HFR does not have the staff or volunteer capacity to sort your recyclables, this means they get TRASHED!
