    According to Stanford’s recycling education, items placed in wrong containers or non-recyclable items placed in recycling bins are considered contamination.  Though there are some sorting and siftingto remove contaminate pieces, too many pieces not caught soon enough can ruin a recycled batch.  Standford urges people to thoroughly read what is and is not accepted by your recycling company to prevent to much contamination.
