Stones River Recycling Service is committed to educating our customers on the do’s and dont’s about recycling. We inform our customers by email when we notice non-recyclable items in their containers. Our service is a little more personal because we don’t have trucks dumping cans into the back to be sorted at our facility. We check each bag at every residence and make sure that it is at least 90% recyclable and inform and educate immediately if it is not. Below is a great article explaining what happens to non-recyclable items with companies that use larger trucks and have a different sorting method than ours.
