These 12 Items Can’t Be Recycled In Olmsted County
Olmsted County's Recycling Center has a great tool for you to use the next time you have a pile of junk to throw out. Their Waste Wizard will help you figure out if something can go in your garbage can, recycling bin, or if it needs to be taken to the Recycling Center. I used it last night and found out paper towels can't be recycled.
I ended up with a pile of paper towels after wiping down cabinets and countertops in my garage, and right before tossing them into the recycling I stopped and wondered if I should because they were soiled and had cleaning chemicals on them. That's when I pulled out the waste wizard and learned that they aren't recyclable. Check out some of the other things you can't recycle in Olmsted County below.
The Olmsted County Recycling Center is located at 305 Energy Pkwy NE in Rochester.
