Recycling Tips

  • Find a convenient place to collect recyclable items. Most things come from the kitchen, making it a good spot to set up a recycling center.
  • The great thing about recycling is that it lets you put your favorite old containers, bins, or baskets to use. Assign containers for plastic, and aluminum. To avoid messes, choose solid containers for storing items such as cans that may have a sticky residue.
  • Take leftover plastic bags back to grocery stores where they are collected and reused to make plastic lumber.
  • Check the bottom of plastic items to identify what type of plastic they are. If the type is not recycled at your local center, consider ways to reuse the container.
  • Save water and time when recycling cans and bottles. You no longer need to rinse them out or remove their labels.
  • Recycle junk mail or reuse it as scratch paper. To opt-out of certain junk-mailing lists, go to opt-out.cdt.org.
  • Newspapers, magazines, and white paper can all be recycled as long as the paper is clean and dry. Plastic wrap, stickers, or rubber bands should be removed, but staples and plastic window envelopes are OK.
  • Divide recycling duties among family members and sort items on a daily basis.
  • Print out this list of commonly recycled materials. Post it where you recycle.
