What materials can be recycled?

The materials that can be recycled will vary depending on where you live. Generally, aluminum and steel cans, plastic bottles and containers, cardboard boxes, paper products (newspapers, books, and magazines), glass jars, and bottles can all be recycled. However, it’s important to check with your local recycling provider to see what types of materials they accept.

Can I recycle plastic bags?

Most curbside recycling programs do not accept plastic bags because they can jam the sorting machines at recycling centers. Check with your local store or municipality to see if they offer a program where you can drop off plastic bags for recycling. Many retailers also offer their bag recycling programs.

Can I recycle electronics?

Most electronics can be recycled at specialized facilities that have the proper equipment to handle and recycle these materials safely. Contact your local recycling authority or municipality to find out where you can drop off old computers, cell phones, TVs, and other electronic devices for recycling.

Are recyclables sorted by hand?

No, recyclables are typically sorted using a combination of automated and manual sorting. Automated sorting is done through conveyor belts, magnets, optical scanners, and other equipment that can quickly identify different materials. Manual sorting is done by workers who inspect items to make sure they are suitable for recycling.

How do I know if an item is recyclable?

Check with your local recycling provider to find out what materials they accept. You can also look for the “recycling symbol” on the packaging, which indicates that the container can be recycled. Alternatively, you can check online resources such as Recycle Now, which offer information about what items can be recycled in your area.

How do I dispose of hazardous materials?

Hazardous materials such as paint, motor oil, and batteries should not be placed in the regular garbage or recycling bin. Contact your local waste management authority to find out where you can safely dispose of these materials.

Is recycling mandatory in my area?

Whether or not recycling is mandatory depends on where you live. Contact your local waste management authority to find out if there are any local laws requiring you to recycle certain items. In many cases, municipalities will provide incentives, such as discounted waste collection fees, for households that try to recycle.
