  20. Place only recyclables in the recycling roll cart. *

    When trash or other non-recyclables are put in a recycling roll cart, the recyclable material is considered contaminated and all of the material must be emptied as trash. In these instances, the ACC Solid Waste Department may charge you an additional refuse charge to dispose of the contaminated material. Customers who repeatedly contaminate recycling roll carts will have their recycling roll carts removed.
