I'm learning more about recycling everyday (thanks to my friends at BigGreenHead.com!).
Like many households, we have a giant blue recycling bin that we throw all our recyclables into. Like many people, I had some questions in my mind as I was tossing a plastic container or a pizza box; Can the lid be recycled? Is it OK if there is a little grease on the pizza box? Should I rinse out containers before recycling them? But when I'm in the kitchen, I'm usually doing five other things and I don't have time to find the answer.
I kinda just figure the guys at the recycle place will figure it out.
Recycling Etiquette 101 made me rethink that. Imagine you worked at the recycle plant and had to sort bottles with soda still in them or old, un-rinsed sour cream containers. Yuck!
Check out the article for some good, conscientious tips on how to properly recycle. It opened my eyes!
