IS YOUR HOME OR BUSINESS A BAY STAR?

We live in a beautiful region surrounded by water. It impacts everything from the food we eat to the fun we have as well as our economic livelihood. Our daily actions have a lasting impact and it's up to us to protect and restore our waterways. It takes a community of individuals making small changes to make a difference. Getting involved in the Bay Star programs is one way you can be part of the effort to protect our region's most defining natural resource, water.

What’s the good, green word?

We absolutely LOVE that you’re recycling. But did you know that if you’re not “recycling right,” you may be contaminating the recycling bin? And the consequence of contamination is that EVERYTHING in the bin may be unsuitable for recycling.

Nooooooo!

Partnering with our friends at TFC Recycling, we want you to know how to avoid contamination:
♻️ Make sure curbside recyclable materials are empty, clean and dry. (No dirt, food or liquids!)
♻️ Know what’s accepted in specialty drop-off recycling bins.
♻️ Put non-recyclables in the trash can.

What can YOU do to Start Smart and Recycle Right?

👉 To help you avoid contamination, access our special recycling lookup tool at https://askhrgreen.org/recycling-lookup/
