Recyclables are collected in a 96-gallon covered, wheeled, waterproof cart that conveniently holds all recyclables, except glass. Broken glass leaves shards that contaminate other recyclables, damages processing equipment and poses a danger to sorting crews.
You can still recycle glass bottles and jars (brown, green, clear) at the Regional Transfer Station's Recycling Center, Albertson's, Swain's, the Port Angeles Plaza and the Blue Mountain Transfer Station.
Did You Know That............. City Residents can sign up for curbside recycling and yard debris services, or they may take these items to the Regional Transfer Station for recycling or composting.
