Ever wonder what happens to your recycling after it gets picked up off your curb? There are a lot of questions as to what we should recycle and what we should throw away.
Bagging your recycles in Publix type bags is a no no. However keeping the caps on water and soda bottles is okay.
Here is what you can recycle:
- Steel and aluminum food and drink cans.These have the highest value and can be made into a new item quicker than any other material.
- Paper and cardboard.Every time a ton of paper is recycled, that saves 16 trees. WM accepts loose paper, newspapers, magazines, junk mail and even phone books. Just make sure all boxes are broken down.
- Plastic bottles and jugs. If the lid is also plastic, keep it screwed on.
- Glass bottles and jars.Remove metal or plastic caps before recycling your glass bottles.
