I have written several articles about recycling in Winnetka and the North Shore, including:
In checking the Winnetka website, I came across yet more information on recycling. For instance,
- metal cans are also accepted (I thought it was just soda cans)
- aluminum foil and pie plates!
- envelopes - window style are okay too
- any refrigerated or non-refrigerated gable top cartons such as milk, soup, juice packs, wine
Don't forget: most caps on bottles, even though plastic, are not accepted. Please remove the caps before tossing into the recycling bin.
If there is no recycling symbol on the bottom of the item, it's not recyclable.
Reminder: anything market with #6 on the bottom is not recyclable. Everything numbered 1-5 and 7 is good.
