2012 Recycle Dive Results
- Green Efforts held its first Recycle Dive on November 14, 2012 to see how much of our recycling is contaminated. The City of Glendale accepts up to 15% contamination. See results below.
- The non-recyclable material included food, food-contaminated containers, styrofoam drink cups, styrofoam, candy-wrappers, chip bags, plastic straws and plastic bags. Many bottles and drink containers were contaminated by leaving liquid in them. Gum was found stuck to many cans. Our goal is to reduce the amount of contamination bringing the blue wedge as close to 100% as possible.
