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


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
