Garbage and Recycling
We take out our own trash at VHS. If it's full, take it to the dumpster. Do not wait to get to the state of garbage jenga.
Go towards the back of the shop and you will find a dumpster key and a door:
Go Outside and turn right, and you will find a Dumpster, Follow these easy steps:
- Use they key on the Dumpster Lock.
- Pivot the locking bar downwards
- Open the lid
- Deposit the garbage within the Dumpster.
- Close the lid
- Don’t forget to lock it when you are done.
Recycling goes here. We separate regular recycling from cash recycling, I.E. cans and bottles.
According to our agreement with the waste management company: The General Garbage bin is for “PLYWOOD WASTE AND GENERAL GARBAGE” which allows for 5% organic waste that should otherwise go into compostables in a green bin. The mixed recycling tote allows for “A RECYCLING TOTE FOR CANS, TINS, PLASTIC CONTAINERS :recycle:1, :recycle:2 :recycle:4 :recycle:5, AND A LITTLE CARDBOARD”
If you hate the idea of organics ending up in the landfill as much as I do, please consider packing out your food waste. THANK YOU!
(Please also keep in mind that solid wood scraps are considered organics waste but not plywood.)
