There are a number of things we can all do to ensure as much material as possible is recycled. When recycling, keep the following tips in mind! Things like food, wood, clothing, textiles, electronics, books, metal products (like pots, pans, hangers, etc.), and toys shouldn’t be included in your recycling bin.
Plastic bags don’t go in your recycling bin
Plastic bags can be returned to a depot for recycling, but when they are included in your recycling bin it causes big problems in the recycling system. They get mixed with other recyclables making it very difficult to meet the standards of both local and international recycling markets, potentially affecting the recyclability of all the material.
