Changes are happening with the single-stream recycling bin in Teutopolis beginning May 3, 2019. Because of the changes in the recycling market that limits the number on the plastic container being accepted, increases in recycling costs and expenses exceeding donations the Teutopolis Recycling program will no longer accept any plastics for recycling at their site.
The recycling market has changed what they will accept from Sanitation Service so most of what is in our dumpster cannot be recycled therefore it is sent to the landfill. Knowing this and the fact that our monthly charge for pick up will increase, not to mention the time each volunteer spends pulling trash from the dumpster has lead to this decision.
We will continue collecting cardboard, aluminum cans, newspaper and copy paper in the Paper Depot building.
