What Can I Recycle?

What Can I Recycle?

Note that recycling is a market-based industry, meaning that items that were recycled in the past, may not be recyclable today.

That's why it's important to keep it simple! Many times focusing on well-known items is the best way to establish a successful recycling program. You lower your chances of contamination and increase your recycling rate. Make it your goal to recycle key items: clean cardboard, aluminum/steel cans, glass, paper, and plastic bottles.
