Hey there! I’m Bart the Cart.
My job is to help Lake Forest residents rethink how they recycle. Like you, I need the right diet or I don't function well. Lately, I've had some serious indigestion due to being fed unrinsed items and non-recyclable items. Here are simple guidelines for what to put in your cart in order for recycling in Lake Forest to work better — and so yours truly has a happy tummy!
Follow these four guidelines and you'll help make our Lake Forest recycling program a major success!
Recyclables should be well-rinsed
and empty, lids on.
No plastic bags should be among your recyclables.
Styrofoam and #6 plastics are not recyclable.
They can damage the sorting equipment.
