Garbage and Trash Handling:
Due to the regulations in effect for the county we must separate our garbage by type and sort it into clear plastic bags.
Prepare all trash for re-cycling.
PLEASE BE MINDFUL OF GARBAGE AT MEALTIME. PUT RE-CYLCE TRASH IN THE CORRECT CONTAINER. NO ONE LIKES TO RE-SORT IMPROPERLY DISPOSED RE-CYCLEABLES. COMMANDERS INSTRUCT THE BOYS IN THIS MATTER.
Keep all trash and garbage tied up in plastic bags to avoid having flies around.
The following directions must be strictly adhered to:
Use only clear bags.
Plastic items in a separate bag.
Recyclable cans in a separate bag.
Glass in a separate bag. All glass (rinsed and labels removed) in separate container.
Tin cans (rinsed and labels removed) flattened and put in separate container.
All kitchen waste placed in a clear plastic bag and placed in the dumpster.
