What is Single-Stream Recycling?
Single-stream recycling is when all recyclable materials (paper, plastic, aluminum, etc.) is placed in the same bin to be recycled. Single-stream systems are credited with increasing the total amount of recycled material. However, bins are easily contaminated with non-recyclable waste. It is estimated that one out of every five things Waukesha residents recycle is actually trash.
