Tanglers

Tanglers

Do not place items that tangle in curbside recycling. Tanglers are things like bags, films, ropes, cords, hoses, light strings and wires that jam sorting machinery by wrapping around the equipment discs and wheels. This creates problems and can shut down an entire Materials Recovery Facilities (MRFs) or recycling plant that sorts recyclables.

Some of these items can be recycled elsewhere. Plastic bags and film can be recycled at many retail locations. Find a location at www.plasticfilmrecycling.org

Light strands and cords can be recycled year-round at the HHW Facility located at 5138 Enterprise Blvd., Warren, Ohio. Drop off during business hours M-F 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Some other retailers accept Christmas lights for recycling during the winter months.
