Changes have been announced to materials being accepted at the Fredericksburg Recycling Center beginning on Monday, November 1, due to a global decline in the recycling industry.

The first grouping of plastics accepted include those commonly referred to as PET or PETE and include salad dressing bottles and other food and drink containers. HDPE plastics accepted include milk jugs, detergent bottles and shampoo bottles.
