My face when I see someone put a glass cooking container in the recycling bin. Always remember glass containers used for cooking, such as Pyrex, are not accepted.

When it comes to recycling, no matter what color the glass … your recycler is the one to ask. Most programs accept clear food glass, but check to make sure your local recycler accepts brown, green and other colors.

You know what I love almost as much as seeing a sparkling clean glass jar in a recycling bin? Listening to great music! Take a listen to the songs I jam out to while I’m recycling.

Did you catch us at the MSU football game on Saturday? We had a PAW-some time helping Michiganders by tackling recycling mistakes and decreasing curbside contamination rates!

PAWse before spending time taking labels off glass containers! Curbside recycling programs accept containers with labels.

Got cans? Recycle them! Most recyclers take empty aerosol cans unless they contained hazardous materials like paint or chemicals.

Anyone have an extra wire hanger I can use for my vest? Remember that wire hangers are not recyclable curbside, so if you’ve got any old ones, I’ll take ’em! Or look for a drop-off location near you.

There’s nothing better than kicking my paws back after a long day of emptying dirty cans and sorting scrap metal out of curbside recycling bins. Recycling rules when it’s done right!

Save yourself time and don’t sweat the labels when recycling metal containers.

Leftover canned food sure is delicious, but it can spill and contaminate an entire recycling bin. and rinse and empty all containers before recycling.

Check out the newest addition to my instrument collection! Rinsed and emptied cans make the BEST drums … or recyclables! I’m still looking for a lead singer to join my band if anyone’s interested.
