Blue Box (Recycle Bins) are for Clean Recycle Material Only

Recyle Box Stickers

The City of Plainview would like to remind citizens that the blue bins are for clean recycle material only.

Materials accepted in the recycle bin include cardboard, plastics, newspaper and paper.

Any cardboard that is not "clean" - the cardboard contains spills, pizza remnants or other items that deteriorate the material will ruin the contents of the blue bin and make all items non-recyclable.

We make every effort to recycle when possible but at times, the contents of the blue boxes will be required to go directly to the landfill due to unclean materials.

To help keep items viable for recycle, divide out the different recyclable materials and place in plastic bags and encourage your neighbors to do the same.

With a little bit of effort on everyone's part, we can continue to have a successful recycling program.

For any questions about recycling or to inquire about obtaining a blue box, please contact the landfill at 806.296.1152.
