What can be recycled
in Spring Hill?
Newspaper – Please take it out of the plastic bag before placing in
the recycling bin. The bags are not recyclable with the newspaper, but can be recycled
with the plastic shopping bags at your local grocery store.
Cardboard – Please flatten boxes.
Remove any packing material inside the box. Large boxes must be
cut down to the dimensions no larger than 3’ x 3’. Cereal,
cracker, pizza (without food), and similar boxes are also acceptable.
Plastic #1 and #2 bottles – (No motor oil containers).
This includes food containers such as cooking oil and salad dressings;
personal care products like shampoo or lotion; cleaning products such
as window cleaner, laundry detergent, floor cleaner; and, of course,
soda, milk and water bottles. If unsure whether the plastic bottle
is recyclable, look on the bottom for a triangle. If the number
inside of it is a #1 or #2, then it is recyclable.
Steel cans – Labels do NOT have to be removed.
We do ask that all containers be rinsed.
For those concerned with using excess water to rinse containers, a simple
solution to rinsing peanut butter jars is to put it in your dishwasher when
you wash your next load of dishes – No extra water expended.
