El contenedor grande azul es para reciclaje mixto. Los artículos aceptados de plástico, papel y metal son coleccionados juntos en el contenedor grande azul y separados después en el centro de recuperación de materiales (MRF). Complejos multifamiliares pueden tener un contenedor muy grande en vez del carrito azul.Cualquiera sea el caso, es realmente importante que se reciclen los artículos correctos así como es muy importante que éstos estén limpios. Los contaminantes, ya sean materiales no reciclables o descartes de comida pueden causar que toda una carga sea enviada al basural. Cuando esté en duda, tírelo a la basura. Y por favor, NO incluya bolsas plásticas, vidrio o papel triturado.
