SINGLE STREAM SPECIFICATIONS

General specifications for single stream recycling are as follows. Materials may be added or deleted on a case-by-case basis. All material is loose and shipped in vans, roll offs, or walking floor trailers. Haycore usually provides transportation, unless specified.

General

Single stream recycling focuses on material originating from normal residential use. Material needs to be clean and should be kept dry. Only materials described below should be collected, but changes can be made if new markets emerge. Excessive residue (garbage) increases disposal costs at the processing center and can affect tipping fees. Haycore reserves the right to discontinue service to vendors that do not make an effort to provide quality material. Care must be taken when loading or unloading trucks. Single stream recycling is provided on a contractual basis and after a pre-determined number of test loads are delivered and processed.
