Film, Food and Foam: What Not to Recycle

Those four letter F-words — Film, Food, Foam —  are the top three contaminants causing the most trouble for the county’s recycling efforts.  The Athens-Clarke County Recycling Facility goes through about 80 tons of recyclable materials EVERY DAY.  And 12 tons of that material — about 14-15% — of that material can’tgo through the full recycling process. However, residents have another option to get rid of these materials without contaminating other recyclables.

Athens-Clarke County Recycling Facility welcomes any questions about recycling either at their facility or CHARM, and more information on their services can be found at the county website.
