Going Green with the Big Blue! | The Milton Moms

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!
