Curbside Recycling

Glass is now categorized as NON-RECYCLABLE, as are Types 3-7 Plastics. There is no market to sell the recycling into so it is going to the landfill by way of the recycling center, creating a greater environmental impact than it would if placed directly in the trash.  

The two types of plastic that are still recyclable are Types 1 & 2, which are among the most common. Examples of Type 1 are soda bottles, water bottles, salad dressing bottles and cooking oil bottles (bottles you drink from or that hold consumables). Some examples of Type 2 are milk and juice jugs, shampoo, conditioner or bodywash bottles and laundry detergents containers.   Neither of these lists are comprehensive, so be sure to check each container for the recycling logo and the codes PET or PETE for Type 1 and PEHD or HDPE for Type 2. If the container has any of these codes, it is recyclable. If they have a different code, please put it in the trash.
