These Doors do not Recycle?

Does anyone know what these signs on the Red Line mean? I have been confused by them since they appeared awhile back. Any insight?

    I believe they are the new kind of doors the T decided to use – the old ones would pop back open if there was something obstructing them from closing properly. Why they say something as unclear as they do not “recycle” as oppposed to “watch it jerk, if you stick your umbrella in here to try to catch the train, you’re gonna lose it” is beyond me…

    Hmm. Weird. I never would have thought that was what they meant. But I was clueless, obviously.

    There’s a joke in there somewhere about a transfer station and tin cans…if I just weren’t so tired. ;-)

    P.S. Watch the closing doors.
