Recycling wrong costs the City time and money. The Recycle Right campaign’s mission is to educate the public about which items can and cannot be recycled. The campaign also highlights the negative environmental and financial effects of improper recycling practices which can result in contamination.

Haz Ben, also known as household hazardous waste (HHW), is double trouble!

Not only can he contaminate good recyclables if placed in the blue bin, but he can also create a safety hazard if not disposed of properly.

Household hazardous waste like cleaners, aerosol cans, varnishes, batteries, motor oil, pesticides, and paint do not belong in the blue recycling bin.

Drop them off for safe disposal at the J.C. Elliott Collection Center, Highway 286 at Ayers Street, Monday through Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

ALWAYS REMEMBER TO RECYCLE RIGHT, CORPUS CHRISTI!
