New recycling bins are coming! These things are monsters and I am looking forward to hopefully fitting all recycling in one bin, instead of the 5 we are currently using. I love to recycle! It’s just one tiny, little thing I can do that makes me feel better about our daily waste, and I can’t wait to teach my kids more about it!
Here are some easy reminders about the do’s and don’t of recycling:
DO include any cans from food or drinks
DO recycle plastic bottles, jugs, jars, tubs
DO add your glass bottles and jars
DO include paper and cardboard
DO empty and rinse items, and replace the cap
DO breakdown and flatten cardboard
DO NOT bag your recycling
DO NOT include any plastic bags or wrap
DO NOT put any food in the recycling bins
DO NOT include any cords or wires, or items that may tangle
DO NOT recycle clothes…. but do make sure to donate!
