Political materials received in the mail, signs and posters are recyclable
OAKLAND, Calif. — November 8, 2012 — As another political season comes to an end, Waste Management would like to remind residents that most political signs placed in yards and on fencing are recyclable, as are official Voter Guides and other collateral materials and direct mailings received throughout the campaign season.
“We encourage all residents to recycle all political material possible,” said Rebecca Jewell, Recycling Programs Manager, Waste Management. “Residents can be politically active, and reduce waste at the same time.”
Signs and placards made out of paper, cardboard or plastic are recyclable. The metal stakes and stands may also be recyclable. Please refer to your individual recycling program for further details and recycling center locations, or you can visit www.stopwaste.org for more information.
