Waste Reduction Tips

Recycling Cart Tags





City of Kirkland and Waste Management use "Recycling Only Oops" tag to monitor contamination in recycling carts. If a driver spots contamination in your recycling cart, the cart will be tagged, and you will be informed on proper disposal.

Our increased efforts in recycling right and reducing contamination is a result of new restrictions by China in the type of materials they will collect for recycling. We all need to do our part in helping to make recycling sustainable for years to come. To learn more about some of the changes in the recycling industry click here.

  • Recycle Often. Recycle Right

    Recycle Used Motor Oil Next to Your Cart Place in transparent 1-gallon jugs with screw on lids. Label with name and address. Place next to carts. Limit 2 gallons a week.
