It means that you can place almost all types of solid recyclable items (i.e.cardboard, plastics, metal, cans, & glass) mixed together in the same blue recycling container. The only exception is paper. All paper products should be placed in a plastic bag with the top tied closed before being placed in a blue recycling container.
There are several reasons for this, one of which is to keep the paper products from becoming contaminated with liquids from beverage/food containers in the recycling dumpster or collection vehicle. Contaminated paper can introduce impurities and bacteria to other paper products, which will decrease market value. Paper can also easily blow away. Please place all paper products in a plastic bag with the top tied closed before placing it inside a blue container for collection.
This is when unacceptable material is placed in recycling containers or bins. For example, grass clippings or trash mixed with recyclables would be a type of recycling contamination. Another example of contaminated recyclables would be a paper plate that has been used and is saturated with food waste.
