EUGENE, Ore. – The city of Eugene has redefined the list of what can and can’t go in your recycling bin. Officials say the changes are the result of fluctuations on the international market.
Here is a list of items that are no longer accepted in the city’s recycling streams:
• Plastic tubs.
• Plastic items number #3 through #7.
• Aseptic containers like milk and juice cartons.
• Shredded paper.
Experts say if these items get into bins they contaminate all the other recyclable material.
