Happy Election Day! As the polls close today, and we all breathe in a sigh of relief that we will return to our regularly scheduled commercials, it’s time to start thinking about what to do with the political paraphernalia that for weeks have stuffed our mail boxes and adorned our yards.
While some may want to hang onto the yard signs and newspaper editorials for nostalgia, the rest of us are ready to move on with our lives and pitch the campaign material to the curb. However, I have one last political plea for you this Nov. 6 – please elect to recycle!
Curbside Recyclable Election Material
- All campaign mail
- Polling place pamphlets
- Newspaper editorials
- Cardboard and paper political signs (no metal stakes)
Unfortunately, we are unable to recycle the plastic political signs (including the corrugated plastic and laminated signs) or the metal sign holders; however, check with your local solid waste district for recycling options before you toss it into your trash can.
