Recycle Bins 

 

The Bottom Line on Recycling Do's and Dont's

There is no single standard for recycling - every community sets their own.

Phone Books and Pizza Boxes are often not welcomed by recycling programs.

Not all plastic can be recycled. Look for the recycling symbol to be sure.

 

Did you know?

Your local community or trash pickup firm can usually advise on recycling regulations.

 

Do Recycle:

  • High-quality plastics labeled with number one and two recycling symbols.
  • Food and beverage containers, such as milk, soda, water, salad dressings, etc.
  • Jars and canisters such as those used for peanut butter, soap, and aspirin bottles, etc.
  • Mail, junk and otherwise, including brochures, fliers, white/light envelopes, etc.
  • Aluminum, tin and steel cans, such as soda, beer, tuna, vegetable, etc.
  • Printed paper such as newspaper, magazines, phone books, legal pads, etc.

Don't Recycle (usually):
Be sure to check with your local recycling officials, since some of the items below CAN be recycled in some communities.

  • Plastic bags
  • Newspaper delivery bags
  • Styrofoam
  • Lids from glass containers
  • Pizza boxes
  • Phone books
  • Mirrors
  • Aerosol cans
  • Paint cans
  • Wax paper
  • Food-soiled paper
  • Window glass
  • Ceramics
  • Light bulbs
  • Microwaveable food trays

Always trying to learn more about recycling, Joan Cox ... what we can and cannot recycle.  I was surprised to learn that our recycler does NOT want tissue paper from gift boxes, etc.  It's a constant learning process ... thanks for sharing this info ...
