**RECYCLING NEWS** 

DO NOT PUT GLASS, FOOD (OR ANY ITEM WITH FOOD RESIDUE STILL ON IT), RAZOR BLADES, NEEDLES AND/OR STYROFOAM INTO RECYCLE ROLL CART

The Town of Irmo does not accept glass for recycling; please discard all glass in the regular household roll cart (or citizens can take to local recycling drop-off points around the midlands).

There has been a surge in the need to recycle cardboard boxes.  The increase in online shopping has also increased the number of boxes used to ship items around the world.  Therefore there is a current push promoting the recycling of flattened boxes. 

There is also a strong market to recycle not only cardboard but also: paper, plastic bottles and metal cans.

February 23, 2019 – There will be a drop-off recycling event for Lexington and Richland County residents for paper shredding, electronics and scrap metal.  The event will be from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm at the Riverbanks Zoo & Garden, 500 Wildlife Parkway, Columbia 29210 (overflow parking lot, just past the main entrance)
