Why don't the blue bins have liners?
For one, liners create more waste. Further, they clog up the recycling separators and sorters at the Materials Recovery Facility (MRF). Finally, contamination can send materials perfectly suited for recycling to the landfill. All-In-One blue bins with no liners reinforce the action of placing only acceptable, cleaned and rinsed materials in them. Please be thoughtful when placing materials in the blue bins. Please help us keep contamination to a minimum for program success.
