Pictures of Acceptable Items for Cafeteria Recycling Bin Tops — remind students what to recycle and decrease trash contamination.  These are especially useful when a recycling poster cannot be displayed above a recycling bin.  Cut out photos and attach to cafeteria recycling bin tops. 

PGCPS Mixed Recycling Dumpster

  • DO NOT BAG RECYCLABLES, items should be loose in the recycling dumpster.
  • Place only acceptable materials in the bin.  Unacceptable items contaminate the load of recyclables and can result in the materials being sent to the landfill.  All acceptable items can be combined together into blue PGCPS mixed recycling dumpsters. 
  • Lock recycling dumpsters to prevent trash contamination.  PGCPS recycling dumpsters have an auto-release locking mechanism and padlock to prevent non-PGCPS usage.  The recycling truck will empty a locked dumpster (horizontal bar raised above doors and padlock engaged).  View a video of a locked dumpster being emptied.
