Tuesday at 10 a.m., WM Recycle Tampa held an open house and grand re-opening ribbon cutting ceremony. Nearly two months ago, a significant fire closed down the 68,000 square-foot Waste Management plant. Waste Management said that when people put the wrong items in their recycling bin, fires can start. They say that they’d like to educate people about why recycling properly is so important. They say that contamination is the most likely cause of the fire.
See what’s wrapped around the gears in this “star screen” at Tampa’s Waste Management recycling facility? That’s contamination that shouldn’t be in your recycling bin. (1/2) @FOX13News pic.twitter.com/uqgODsRqXl

When non-recyclables like plastic bags, scrap metals or clothing are put in the improper bin, it’s a fire hazard for them at the plant. Residents should only include dry paper, cardboard, cans and bottles in the roadside recycle containers.
