Now that Burrtec has taken over the trash contract, what will be the disposition of the 165,000 Waste Management bins?
Editor’s note: We reached out to Waste Management with your question, and received this response: “Preventing excess waste, we are intending to reuse as many carts from Santa Clarita as we can. Thankfully, WM carts are made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) polymer, commonly known as No. 2 plastic, which is highly recyclable when containers reach their end of life. So, the ones we don’t use will get recycled.”
