As of the start of May 2017, mixed recyclables collected from organizations participating in Momentum Recycling’s business services program have been going to Waste Management’s Material Recovery Facility (MRF) located in South Jordan, Utah. We feel strongly that this new path for your mixed recyclables will ensure greater capture rates while allowing us to have a more constructive dialogue about what can and can’t be recycled.
A quick update about items that are accepted in the mixed recyclables stream: plastic coated containers are okay to place in your blue bins. However, plastic bags and plastic film are still not considered acceptable items and neither is shredded paper (regardless of whether it is contained in bags).
Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you might have regarding acceptable items or our new partnership with the Waste Management MRF!
