Recycling is intended to make the environment better by eliminating waste, but some recycling businesses have to deal with the cost problem of transporting non-recyclable material to landfills. Steve Estes of Advanced Disposal says locally he sees a lot of misplaced items collected that are not suited for recycling.
Estes says some common items mistakably placed in recycling bins are used styrofoam cups, old pizza containers, and plastic bags. He says all recycling that he collects in Door County is transported to Outagamie County for processing.
