Pepin changes recycling program
Pepin County recycling will no longer be taking plastic toys, wrap or containers marked Nos. 3 to 7. The program will still recycle No. 1-PETE and 2-HDPE plastic bottles, jugs, tubs and lids, but all other plastics should be put in the garbage.
Pepin County had sought to find a reliable market to dispose of non-traditional plastics, but no cost-effective solution could be found, according to a statement from the county.
