It is estimated that 30% & sometimes half of all beverage containers sold are consumed on the go. When you grab a plastic water bottle to stay hydrated this summer, take the extra step & recycle it! Locate the nearest bin or take your recyclables home with you!

Believe it or not, your single-use coffee and drink cups are NOT recyclable. They’re partially made of plastic, meaning the cups can’t get broken down and turned into recycled paper. This becomes a contamination issue if recycled.

DYK most MRFs don’t accept plastic straws/utensils. B/c straws—quite literally—fall through the cracks. And plastic utensils are identified as a top source or contamination b/c their size, inconsistent materials, and shape make them difficult to recycle.

Empty bottled water containers and jugs ALWAYS go in the recycling bin, but greasy pizza boxes DON’T. Once greasy food comes into contact with paper, it’s no longer recyclable, so it goes in the trash.
