The City of Flagstaff is beginning a program that will have city staff and trained volunteers begin to inspect the contents of residents’ recycling bins. City officials say the program is an effort to decrease Flagstaff’s recycling contamination rates. On the days of recycling service, residents may see staff or volunteers looking through the containers. If a large amount of non-recyclable materials are found in the bins, an “OOPS” tag will be tied onto the handle of the bin. The tag will notify the resident of the specific materials that need to be kept out of the bin in the future. The program stems from recent changes to the types of plastic that can be recycled in the city. For more information about the program, log onto
