If the recycling container simply tips over, chances are that the recycling pickup workers will pick up your materials and put them in the truck. However, similar to standard sanitation services, it is the resident's responsibility to ensure that materials are placed in their designated pickup location in an orderly fashion. Large quantities of recyclable materials that are spread over a defined area could result in citations from the Canton City Health Department.
A Helpful Tip
To prevent animals from getting into your recyclable materials, be sure to thoroughly rinse your food items before placing them in the container. Animals are attracted to food smells - if your items have been rinsed properly, animals will not have any reason to investigate your container.
