4. CAVENDISH Q & A-RECYCLING PLASTIC PILLOWS
Q. Regarding Cavendish Zero Sort recycling... I think they take plastics #1-#7, but is this only rigid plastics or do they also accept those inflated plastic shipping pillows (this particular batch is marked #2)?
 
A. According to Bruce McEnaney, Asst Town Manager, They can't be recycled using the present machinery operated by Casella. The problem with the pillows and also plastic shopping bags is that they blow around and get caught in the gears and bearings on the machine.  They then have to stop sorting and cut the offending plastic awayHowever, you can include deflated packing pillows in your grocery store’s plastic bag recycling bins. These bins are usually located at the entrance of the store.
 
5. CAVENDISH MEMOIRS: CHAPTER 24/FLETCHER FARM
