Mind your plastics. Because of market changes, the City of Montrose has changed the types of plastics accepted through its recycling service, as has Waste Management. (Montrose Daily Press/file photo)

Due to market changes in the recycling industry, the City of Montrose, in partnership with Waste Management, has made changes to the Single-Stream Recycling Program limiting the type of recyclable plastics that are accepted.

Due to the absence of any viable outlet for certain plastics, the city has been forced to collect ONLY plastic items marked with 1, 2, 4, and 5 recycling symbols.
