Avon’s Single Stream Recycling

Avon now has Single Stream Recycling. That means that residents no longer need to separate plastics, glass, newspapers, and other recyclable materials. The following items can all be mixed together in a single container for recycling: tin cans, aluminum cans, glass bottles, plastic household containers, newspaper, cardboard, office paper, envelopes, computer paper, chip board (i.e. cereal type boxes ), junk mail. This will make recycling easier for everyone which will increase the amount of recycling that we do.

With technological advances, different types of recyclable materials can be separated at recycling facilities and then placed back into the stream of commerce for reuse.
