 "Wishful recycling" does more harm than good.  If in doubt, throw it out, and avoid buying.

What about...? 

Plastic bottle caps?  Leave on the bottles. Containers need to be 3 dimensional to be sorted from the paper.

Juice boxes and cartons?  Our recyclers are working on finding a home for them, check back in a couple of months. Leave them out for now. 

Pizza boxes?  Yes, but no pizza or grease please.

Styrofoam TM?  Nope, click here.

Aren't plastic bags recyclable?  Yes, but not in your cart.  Bring to a retailer.  Click here
