How do I prevent windblown litter from my recycling bin or container?

 If possible, avoid putting recycling bins out on windy days and wait for your next pick-up. We will collect extra materials in bin or box no larger than SSC bins. If set out for collection, consider these suggestions:

Stacking bins – set singly on the ground. 

Tub-style bins – nest inside each other.

Recycling Toters® and Dumpsters – Close lids securely.

Cardboard – Flatten boxes, place on ground with a bin on top. 

Do you accept plastic film for recycling?

Yes, plastic film (bags, wrap, etc.) from homes and businesses is accepted at our Bellingham Drop Box Facility and Recycling Center
