Recycling Program

Welcome to Hanson's expanded recycling program. For the convenience of our residents who hold transfer station usage stickers we have at the transfer station marked bins for glass, metal and plastic containers, and for newspapers. Following is a list of acceptable materials. As the program develops, it may be expanded to include more items. Please pay particular attention to the instructions on the preparation of materials. It is especially important that all containers be rinsed free of food, cleaning chemicals, etc. This will help maintain the cleanliness of the recycling site and protect the health of the workers who will be handling the materials. Proper preparation of the recyclables increases their marketability, which in turn will help ensure the long-term success of the program. Glass, plastic and metal cans may be commingled (mixed). Please crush plastic.

REMEMBER: Adding materials not on the accepted list will do more harm than good! THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!
