RE­CY­CLING TIPS:

The Morning Bulletin - - LIFE -

All re­cy­clables should be placed into your re­cy­cling bin loose. If you put it in plas­tic bags, it won’t mat­ter if you fill your re­cy­cling bin to the top – it’ll end up in the land­fill in­stead.

■ What CAN go in your re­cy­cling mo­bile garbage bin:

• Cans - alu­minium, steel and empty aerosols;

• Pa­per and card­board – news­pa­per, mag­a­zines, phone books;

• Car­tons - empty milk, juice car­tons, pop­pers;

• Plas­tics - all bot­tles, con­tainer trays and tubs check for the re­cy­cling sym­bol;

• Glass - bot­tles and jars only;

• Empty and clean pizza boxes (no food or oils), and

• Alu­minium foil, in­clud­ing food trays, dis­pos­able pie dishes.

■ What CAN’T go in your re­cy­cling mo­bile garbage bin:

• Food scraps and gen­eral house­hold waste;

• Build­ing ma­te­ri­als;

• Car and house­hold bat­ter­ies;

• Nap­pies;

• Toys, clothes and shoes;

• Gas bot­tles and cylin­ders;

• Nee­dles and sy­ringes;

• Med­i­cal waste;

• San­i­tary prod­ucts;
