Can I bag my recyclables?

June 13, 2017

No. Please make sure all recyclable materials are placed loosely into your Loraas blue bin; Except clear bagged shredded paper. At the first sorting station, our facility workers hand-sort through the mixed recyclables looking for harmful or non-approved materials and clear bagged shredded paper. Our conveyor belts travel at speeds from 70 to 114 meters/minute. After this station, our facility mainly uses specialized machines or programmed computers to identify the different recyclables. If recyclables are placed together or missed by the employees at the first station, they cannot be sorted and separated which would cause damage to our machines or be harmful to our employees down the line.
