Garden Hose Goes in Trash

Illustration of a garden hose going into a trash cart
Garden hoses belong in the garbage, not the recycling cart! 🚫♻️

In the recycling world, garden hoses are considered “tanglers,” along with ropes, chains, and electrical cords. These tanglers can cause major disruptions in recycling facilities, tangling up equipment and leading to safety hazards for workers and mechanical issues for machinery.

Thank you for helping us keep recycling facilities running smoothly and preventing unnecessary downtime and expenses by disposing of garden hoses properly.
