A crisis in the recycling industry is reflected in what we can and cannot put in our recycling bins starting with this week’s pickup, the city announced.
Here’s what can go into the bin for curbside recycling pickup:
- Plastics: Only #1 (soda/water bottles) and #2 (milk/juice/shampoo/detergent containers);
- Paper: Newspapers, junk mail, phone books, catalogs, office paper; corrugated cardboard, boxboard (cereal boxes/soft drink boxes);
- Metal: Small aluminum and steel cans.
