What can I do with my # 3-7 plastics?
# 3-7 plastics are accepted at the Mariposa County Recycling Center.

It is important to separate these plastics from your garbage and place them in the appropriate bin. Removing them from your trash serves two purposes:
1) It keeps them out of the Composting Facility, which allows the decomposition process to work more efficiently.
2) By removing these plastics from your trash, you will pay less in disposal fees.

Please note that tarps and styrofoam are not accepted for recycling.
