Recycling changes are coming to customers of Roseburg Disposal.
A release from the company said as global recycling markets are continuing to change, Roseburg Disposal is having to make changes to its recycling program as well.
After March 31st, no glass bottles and jars will be accepted. However, the company will start taking plastic containers like milk jugs and detergent bottles. The containers should have wide bases and narrow spouts. Customers should rinse out the container, remove the lids and dispose of them in the regular trash. This does not include plastic buckets, clam shell takeout containers, and plastic bags.
Other materials that can be recycled include:
*Corrugated cardboard. This is the kind with wavy centers.
*Tin and aluminum cans that are rinsed out and have no lids.
*Used motor oil, which has a non-breakable container and a tight lid.
Customers should separate recycled materials by placing plastic containers in the blue bin provided. Then put the bin on top of flattened cardboard. Tin and aluminum cans should go in a separate bucket. The blue bin must be present for collection, even if its empty.
