Recycle Like Crazy: It’s America Recycles Day!
This Saturday, November 17th is America Recycles Day! America Recycles Day is the only nationally recognized day to encourage Americans to recycle and purchase recycled products, so let’s make the most of it.
Many of us are in the habit of recycling and are avid users of our curbside recycling bins. Though it is still common to be confused about what items can or can’t be recycled such as, plastic silverware, tinfoil and Styrofoam® cups.
To that note, here is a short list of a few things that cannot be recycled (Source):
- Any paper soiled with food
- any kind of paper napkin or towel
- Bottles once filled with hazardous waste such as motor oil.
- Plastic soiled with food- it is necessary to fully rinse out plastic before reclining!
Please check out your local recycling laws for a complete list of what can be recycled in your city.
