As of Tuesday, September 1st, 2020, the Town of Smooth Rock Falls will resume recycling.
Items such as wood pallets, chemical containers (DEF fluid, aerosol chemicals, antifreeze jugs), glass, plastic film, food, diapers, pails (including oil pails), hydraulic hoses, garbage (food waste, food in containers), clothing, and black garbage bags are not acceptable.
As of Tuesday September 15th, 2020, the Town of Smooth Rock Falls will be conducting audits of recycling bins and will be turning away any bins that are contaminated. If you receive a RED TAG on your bin this means that your bin contained unacceptable material and must be removed before it will be collected.
Wash all food residue out of containers, throw glass materials in the garbage, and when in doubt, throw it out. Contamination in a load of recycling costs the Town and may cause the load to be shipped to landfill instead of producing a recycled product.
Also, place your bins two (2) feet apart in a suitable location (on roadside) for the waste and recycling truck to pick it up.
If you find a bright red tag on your bin, it could have been a result of contamination or the bins were improperly placed.
Please call the Town Hall for more information or if you have questions about recycling materials.
