Recycling IS NOT Free

Scipio residents are efficient recyclers. We have had the advantage of the Town offering recycling for many years. NYS law requires recycled materials are recycled instead of taken to landfills. Over time the cost of recycling has gone from almost nothing to $500/week for the Town. The reason for this huge increase is the decreasing cost of virgin plastic, loss of the international markets for recycled materials, an increased cost in processing recycled materials and a local/regional loss of commercial recyclers. While we are committed to continuing to provide this service to community members, we ask you to recycle thoughtfully in accordance within the guidelines of our contracted commercial recycler, Casella. In addition, buy recycled materials when you can and upcycle your products when you can. The Town appreciates your cooperation.
