Become a Recycling Pro

Contamination prevents what is recyclable from being recycled. I will spend 15 minutes researching which materials are accepted by local haulers or drop stations in my community and recycle only those items.

Embrace Imperfection

    It helps me put less pressure on myself to always be plastic-free, but by just being aware of it and taking steps to reduce it (such as getting refillable liquid soaps for my house instead of buying a new soap every time) will help in the long run.

    What have you learned about what is accepted by local haulers for recycling, what you can drop off or ship to certain places, and what is not recyclable in your area? What is the most difficult part of recycling for you?

    I've learned quite a bit of what can and can't be recycled with 4R through experience and also learned that pizza boxes can be recycled if they have minimal grease on them - it's just the super grease-soaked boxes that can't be recycled.
