What can I recycle?

We are always striving to improve our waste management practices. To help address recycling contamination, which happens when non-recyclable material (think food, trash, dirt, and non-recyclable plastics) get into the recycling bin and causes the whole load of perfectly recyclable material to be sent to the landfill, the Sustainability Office has engaged the staff at Village Hall, conducted outreach during Main Street Nights, and published a Reuse and Recycling Guide. Our recycling resources, and some from our waste management company, are available below. If you have questions about what you can and cannot recycle, please feel free to use the resources below or contact the Sustainability Office at 708-503-8153 or cmalfeo@vopf.com
