Like a water bottle....the main part of the bottle might be 2 but the neck, is usually different and the cap is completely different again.

Our local recycling doesn't want any plastic food storage containers at all, regardless of how they're labeled on the bottom. It's wild.

for the longest time our recycling centers didnt want pizza boxes, (we have curbside pickup and we don't have to sort), but they kept being inundated with them so they eventually found a program that does recycle them. I guess my 4 years of putting them in the bin anyway finally worked.

I'm not saying you should put the mixed plastic in your bin, but I would. Angel


All this recycling talk reminds me of the Porlandia skit and the fingernail clipping recycling bin.....

Sometimes I get kinda stressed when I'm recycling stuff. Gee, what if I put it in the wrong bin? Is this #5 plastic ok? Oh, dear can I recycle metal stuff with the glass or is that in a different bin?

My husband says I can't recycle the empty paper sugar bags, the ones sugar comes in at the store, but I do it anyway after shaking the sugar out of it. I need a detailed list of all the recycling options next to our bins in the garage so I know what I'm doing.

By the way, there's no hulu option in the video thingy.

Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: Plastics
Wow, you guys still have to seperate your recycling??

Here, if it's recyclable, it goes in the bin. Period.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

RE: Plastics
15 years ago when I lived in the burbs of Minneapolis they were MILITANT about sorting. You had to use three or fours bins for different items (glass, paper, plastic, metal) and if you didnt remove the metal lid from the glass jar you would be getting nasty grams, threats for fines, etc. It was crazy.
Not sure if they still do it that way.

Now we just have two rollout cans, one for trash, one for recycling.
