(WFRV) – Recycling is one of the easiest things you can do for the Earth, so today Local 5 Live spoke with Mark Walter from Brown County Resource Recovery with some dos and don’ts when it comes to recycling.

More from recyclemoretricounty.org:


  • Place all recyclables loosely in your bin – “Don’t be a drag…dump out your bag!” #PhilthyPhilm
    • Plastic bags harm the sorting equipment and can only be recycled at local retailers that accept plastic bags & film.
  • Take confidential papers to a shred event for shredding & recycling.
  • Flatten and cut cardboard to 2 feet x 2 feet.
  • Empty and rinse all containers.
  • Empty and rinse plastic bottles, replace screw caps. No loose caps in the recycling cart.
