**IMPORTANT NOTE ON FOOD SERVICE WARES, WAXED CARDBOARDS & PLASTIC FILM-COATED PAPER PRODUCTS:


West Valley Collection & Recycling wants its customers to be fully aware of limitations on the recyclability of certain items accepted under this program. West Valley is committed to composting as many items as possible and offers customers some of the most comprehensive recycling programs available in the United States. Many food service wares (cups, plates, utensils, etc ...) on the market today indicate they are "compostable" or "biodegradable" and may even carry a 3rd party biodegradability certification. Unfortunately many of these products do not compost completely or consistently in commercial composting facilities. Other items, such as waxed cardboard or thin wax or plastic film coated paper products may seem compostable, but unfortunately, they don't always fully break down in commercial composting operations.


West Valley Collection & Recycling strives to expand the list of acceptable materials in all of its collection programs whenever possible and will continue to expand and adapt the list of acceptable items when new products become available.
