WHAT CAN WE RECYCLE IN PERRY COUNTY?

triangle near the bottom of container

-Flattening saves space...for you and PerCo
|Steel Food Cans:
-All “tin” and steel food cans are accepted
*Again flattening saves space!
*Aluminum & steel cans all go in the bin section
marked for aluminum
NOTE: Always rinse all food and beverage containers. This helps maintain sanitary working conditions for PerCo employees. Labels may be left on.
Corrugated Cardboard only:
This DOES NOT include cereal boxes and other thin pasteboard materials.
Placing items in bins that PerCo cannot recycle causes problems and costs money!!
Thanks for recycling the right way!
WHAT WE DO NOT TAKE AT THE DROP-OFF BINS...AND WHY
Light bulbs, window glass!
All glass is not created equal! The glass in these items is not something you want mixed into new glass bottles!
Cereal boxes and pop/beer wrappers!
Likewise, all paper fibers are not alike! These are called paste-board for a reason: they are mostly glue or paste: they gum up other paper fiber products! No market is currently available to PerCo, our local recycling center.
#3-#7 Plastics, plastic toys, etc…
Just as brown glass is different from clear glass, a # 5 plastic tub is not the same as a #1 pop bottle… Different types of plastics cannot successfully be merged together into a usable product… contamination costs the recycling facility time to sort and can cost them by lowering the price they receive for their finished product. Manufacturers end up with contaminated product which costs them money; guess who pays in the end if their final product costs them more? ...You and me!
Paint, oil, and liquids!
PAINT- buy what you need, use what you buy, donate what is left! As a last resort, dry it up until completely hard and dispose of with trash (leave lids off so trash hauler knows it is not liquid!)
Motor Oil is accepted at our Ultimate Recycling Days. Dates vary, but we try to organize two in the spring and two in the fall. Call our office for other options that may be available.
Hazardous household chemicals can be taken to Environmental Enterprises Inc. in Columbus. Call our office for more information 740-342-7881.
