Recycling 101

These items were sorted out of the corrugated and are considered contamination in that grade. Any idea why?
 
 
Why not participate? You can show off your recycling skills or maybe learn something new.

  1. Waxed coated cartons, such as the Cabbage and Broccoli cartons, are not recyclable with "paper" corrugated. The stretch film, probably from a 24-pc case of watering, though recyclable, adversely affects and contaminates the corrugated paper recycling as well. And what appears to be chipboard or even Solid Bleach Sulfate (SBS) paper stock again should be segregated and recycled within that medium's specific process.
