Bottles in the Bin – In addition to milk jugs and beverage bottles, remember to recycle bottles from salad dressing, cooking oil and condiments; food jars from peanut butter and mayonnaise; bottles from shampoo, conditioner, laundry detergent, fabric softener and household cleaners.
Bag It! – You can recycle plastic bags at many major grocery store chains. Remember to include your grocery and retail bags, newspaper bags, dry cleaning bags, and wraps from bread, bathroom tissue, paper towels, beverage cases, diapers and baby wipes.
Snip the Zip – Sealable plastic food storage and freezer bags can be recycled at the same major grocery stores that collect plastic bags. Remember to remove the sealing mechanism or zipper and be sure bags are clean (no food remnants) and dry.
Containers, Cups and Lids – More and more communities are recycling plastic containers in addition to bottles. Check your community’s website or with your local grocer to see if they collect yogurt cups, butter tubs, deli-containers, lids and other plastics.
