Staff who sort recyclables at the Materials Recovery Facility in Fort Wayne could miss the plastic bags as they sort the non-recyclable items on the fast-moving conveyor belt line. When the plastic bags get caught in the equipment, staff must shut down the line to have somebody go in and cut them out. This is time-consuming, costly, and dangerous.
Look for a plastic bag container at the entrance of your local grocery storefront to recycle plastic bags. Find a drop-off location and review the guidelines in advance on the Plastic Film Recycling website.
Review City of Fort Wayne recycling guidelines on the One Cart Recycling Program website. For more information, contact the City of Fort Wayne's Solid Waste Department at 311 or email the Solid Waste Department.

Latex paint can be disposed of properly by taking the lid off the container and letting it air dry. Set the paint can beside your regular trash for pickup. Leave the lid off so your waste hauler can see the paint is dry.
Optional: Add cat litter or sawdust to the remaining paint to speed up the process. The paint will dry completely in a day or two using this method.
Latex paint is also accepted for recycling at Tox-Away events. Fees apply - learn more on the Household Hazardous Waste Disposal page.
