Recycle Guidelines

The Town of Aberdeen wants to remind citizens the importance of putting the correct recyclable materials in the recycling container.  If you have a red tag on your recycle container then the recycle container has been contaminated with non-recyclable items, household garbage, bags, etc.  

The most common reason for the container to not be emptied is recyclable materials that have been put in a bag and the bag put in the recycle container.  There cannot be any bags in the recycle container; all recyclable materials should be thrown loose in the container.  Another reason is household garbage has been put in the recycle container.  Cans or plastic bottles/containers that have food residue in the container will cause the recycle can to have contaminated materials in it. 

The container WILL NOT be emptied until the issue is corrected and only acceptable items are in the recycle container.  The container will be checked on your next regularly scheduled pickup day and emptied only if it contains acceptable recycle items. 

If you have any questions or received a red tag and think your container does not contain improper items, contact Robert Baker, Sanitation Superintendent, at 910-944-7012.  

Please look at the picture below for items that are acceptable to put in the recycle container.
