Did your cart get tagged?

Recycling Oops Tag

Recycle Right

City of Kirkland and Waste Management use "Recycling Only Oops" tag to monitor contamination in recycling carts. If a driver spots non-recyclable material in your recycling cart, the cart will be tagged, and you will be informed on proper disposal.

Our increased efforts in recycling right and reducing contamination is a result of new restrictions by China in the type of materials they will collect for recycling. It's more important than ever to recycle only items we accept, to keep our recycling system sustainable for years to come.
