Contamination is a major issue at the recycling drop off sites throughout the Wood River Valley, so a group of people consisting of city & county staff, non profit leaders, and waste managers got together and came up with new color coded signage! This signage will be put on the recycling bins at the drop off locations in Smiley Creek, Ketchum, Hailey, Bellevue, and at the Recycle Center. The hope is that this signage will make it easier to identify which bin collects each item, and point out the main contaminant for each item. There will also be informational signs next to these signs to explain how these items are recycled, and why it's important to avoid contaminants.
We hope you find these signs helpful!
