ARLINGTON OAKS RECYCLING PROGRAM
 
Since Arlington Oaks has been chosen by Arlington County to be part of a pilot recycling program for multi-family dwellings, Arlington Oaks has stepped up its recycling program for all of its residents.. To do our part for the environment and comply with the laws of Arlington County, we are now collecting newspapers, magazines, mixed paper, cardboard, glass bottles and jars, metal food and beverage cans, plastic bottles and food containers grades #1 through #7.
 
These materials make up a great deal of trash that is disposed of by Arlington Oaks. If we can recycle this material, we can make a significant dent in the amount of waste we throw away and conserve natural resources in the process. This will also further Arlingtons goal of reaching a
37 % recycling rate by 2014. We will be sure to let you know how we are doing as the program develops.
 
For the recycling program to work, we need the participation of all our residents. Containers for your recyclables have been placed in several trash enclosures where space permits. There are also two major recycling stations, one in the Thomas St. parking lot and one at the south end of the North Pershing Drive parking lot. If the recycling containers in the enclosures are full, or if there are no recycling containers in the trash enclosure you regularly use, please take your recyclables to these major recycling stations. Also, it is extremely important that you do not throw your trash in recycling containers. Trash contaminates recyclables and our recycling company may not accept our materials.
 
Since recycling bottles and cans often creates a good deal of noise, please try recycle between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. Please be considerate of those who live next to the enclosures.
 
Your participation in this program will make a difference! Thanks for your help.
 
 
WHAT TO RECYCLE
 
MIXED PAPER, NEWSPAPER, MAGAZINES, PHONE BOOKS, CARDBOARD
Put your newspapers, magazines, and mixed paper in paper bags or tie them with a string. Do not use plastic bags or include the plastic wrapping from inserts. You may include the glossy newspaper inserts. Please flatten all cardboard boxes so they will take up less room in the containers.
 
METAL FOOD AND BEVERAGE CANS
You can include all types of metal food and beverage cans. Be sure to rinse them out first, but you can leave the labels on. Do not include any other type of metal containers.
 
GLASS BOTTLES AND JARS
You can recycle your clear, green, and brown glass bottles and jars. Be sure to rinse them out first, but do not worry about labels and neck rings. Do not include any other type of glass items (no cookware, drinking glasses, light bulbs, mirrors, etc).
 
PLASTIC BOTTLES AND FOOD CONTAINERS
You can now recycle plastic bottles and food containers numbered #1 through #7. This includes yoghurt containers and clam shell type deli food containers. The number of the container can be found on the bottom of the container. Do not include plastic bags; these should be recycled in the containers for that purpose located near the entrances to all supermarkets.
