The City of Prescott is working in conjunction with Keep America Beautiful to launch a campaign that will help educate residents about items that are and are not part of the city’s recycling program.
“Top 10 In The Bin” is an effort to remind residents of items which may be placed at the curb for recycling.
"We are reaching out because we need citizens' help to follow these guidelines and place the items from the list below, without bagging, in their bins," Prescott’s Solid Waste Superintendent William Black said in a press release. "We have worked with Keep America Beautiful to share an informative flier and educational program.”
The campaign consists of flyers that list items the city will recycle including cardboard; paper; food boxes; mail; jugs; beverage cans; food cans; glass bottles; glass and plastic jars; and plastic bottles.
Items that are not part of the city’s curbside recyclable program include plastic shopping bags, which may be recycled at stores or may be reused, and electronics. Electronics may be dropped off at the City’s Transfer Station. Items such as clothes and textiles are also not part of the curbside recycling program and should be taken to a local thrift store or charity.
