Accepted Recyclables List

 

 

 

 PLEASE DONATE RECYCLABLES

NOT TRASH! 

Living the lifestyle of a recycler is easy and MDI is here to help you. We do have one important request of your participation in our recycle program. “TRASH” can really hamper our program and con actually hurt our employees.

Recyclable materials become “TRASH” when they are contaminated by these things:

  1.  NO – Food waste residue or poisonous bacteria created by spoiled food or liquids  
  2.  NO – Hazardous chemical content or exposure  
  3.  NO – Blood-borne pathogens created by human and/or animal blood and body waste – no used toilet paper, used paper towels, used tissues or used disposable diapers please!  
  4.  NO – Evident mold or mildew growth  

MDI teaches our hard working employees every safety measure possible and we work at all times in appropriate personal protection gear for the job assigned.  But the best safety measure is to prevent exposure to harmful and usually unseen by the naked eye, threats from “TRASH” in the first place.  The unintended result of participants not following our Recycle Center’s simple request for CLEAN AND DRY RECYCLABLES is injury and harm to our employees and we wish to express our gratitude for caring enough to meet this request.  “THANK YOU”!
