Don’t just recycle. Recycle Right.
It’s not only important to recycle. It’s important to Recycle Right.
By only recycling materials that are accepted at the recycling facility, your recycling will make more of an impact. SWACO’s “RECYCLE RIGHT” campaign makes proper recycling easy by giving you a comprehensive list of what should and what shouldn’t go in your recycling container.
