The key to recycling is sorting: Separating recyclables and putting in an assigned bin.

Let’s refresh.

Aluminum Cans: Empty food and beverage cans; NO other aluminum products or tin.

Corrugated cardboard: Flatten; look for ridges; NO waxed cardboard or paperboard (cereal or beverage containers, NO greasy pizza boxes).

Glass containers: Clean; remove lids.

Mixed Paper: Catalogs, magazines, softcover books, telephone books, file folders, paperboard (cereal boxes, paper-roll cylinders); NO newspaper, NO milk, soup, or juice boxes).

Newspaper: Clean and dry.

Plastic Bags/Plastic Film: Clean grocery bags, dry cleaner bags, stretch wrap, trash bags, ziplock bags, bubble wrap.

Plastic PETE 1: Anything (clean) with PETE 1 symbol.

Plastic PETE 2: Anything (clean) with PETE 2 symbol.

Tin Cans: Clean; can be recycled as tin/steel if magnet sticks to container.
