Recycling guidance from the Cortland County Recycling Center Specialist (Audio)

Local News on WXHC.com is brought to you by:

Chris Spadolini, the Cortland County Recycling Center Specialist, spoke last night at the Village of Homer Board of Trustees meeting. Some common issues that he mentioned are:

  • Glass is not recyclable, however the Recycling Center will accept glass if you bring it directly to their facility
  • Not all plastic is recyclable
    • The only plastic that is recyclable is plastic with the chasing arrow symbol with the numbers 1 or 2 inside the symbol
  • Metal containers/tins are the only metal that is recyclable 
  • They prefer cardboard to be flattened with no packing materials still inside
