Tips For Recycling - Easy How-To's To Be Greener

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):

  • Styrofoam
  • Lids from glass containers

I may  put some things in the recycle bin that may not be recyclable Endre Barath, Jr. as I want to recycle as much as possible.  Sometimes I'm not sure so I place it in the bin and know the pro's will sort it out!

Good morning Lisa. In my town there is no trash pick up so everything including  recyling is done at the dump.

Lisa Von Domek these are great tips! We're fortunate our town recycles and picks up everything including our yard waste. They make it so easy for us!

That is interesting Sheila Anderson and a great reminder to all that every town has their own trash rules.

That's wonderful George Souto and my household puts many more recycle buckets out than trash cans!

You are welcome Golden1 Agents thank you for visiting my post!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 1 year ago

As with mine Carla Freund trash pick-up is twice a week and recycles once a week.

Great list Lisa Von Domek !  This is something you have to be aware of and get to understand the do's and don'ts!
