From the Issue:

Troy residents clearly appreciate the Recycling Center.  There is no question about how busy your crew is.  Help the efficiency of the Center by taking a moment to separate colored material - advertising flyers- from newspapers.  Clean newsprint is a source of income supporting the Center, but it is rejected if mixed with colored paper stock.  Make two piles - newspaper in one and colored stock in the separate heap.
    It's waste disposal at the recycling center, right?  But Messy Waste can't be recycled.  Double check that everyone in the household knows that cans and bottles must be rinsed clear of food and beverage residue.  Warm weather is ready to come and food and beverage residues can raise a stink. We don't need sterile results, just rinsed clean of residue. And dispose of caps and lids separately please. Jars and bottles submitted for recycle should be free of lids and covers.
    Be sure everyone in the family is aware that bathroom tissue should not be submitted for recycling.  Tissue is a separate disposal issue.  Make sure bathroom tissue is not mixed with paper submitted for recycling.
