Recycle Right!!!

RECYCLE LIKE A PRO

Recycling is so important for our environment and economy. And yet, it can be a bit confusing at times. So here are some quick tips to help polish up with your curbside and drop-off recycling skills:

Yes, you can recycle the caps on your plastic bottles. Crush the bottle, screw the cap back on, and drop in your recycling bin or cart.

Glass jars a little different: remove the metal lid and drop it in your bin or cart loose from the glass jar.

Everybody knows you can recycle newspapers, magazines and junk mail. Don’t forget your paper towel and toilet paper rolls, cereal boxes and other dry food boxes.

Here is tricky one: yogurt cups, plastic tubs, and plastic trays are not recyclable in local curbside recycling or drop-off programs. Avoid purchasing these when possible or find a reuse for those containers – they are great for storing miscellaneous items such as paper clips, crayons, etc.

When it comes to plastic, here is the rule of thumb: if it is a bottle or jug, then it can be recycled in your curbside recycling or at a recycling drop-off. That includes plastic water and soda bottles, as well other bottles from your kitchen: milk jugs, ketchup, mustard, salad dressings and so on.

Recycle in the bathroom: often overlooked, this room produces many recyclables: the soap box, toilet paper roll, empty shampoo bottle or hairspray bottle.
