Did You Know

Balls are NOT accepted in the general recycling because they cause problems at the recycling facility. Balls of all sizes and types are problematic for processing equipment, causing delays and other issues.

Balls are often made with varying kinds of plastics and other materials that cannot easily be separated or recycled using traditional methods. Balls of any kind should be reused, donated, or placed in the garbage.
