Recycling Resources

It's spring cleaning time and many people are donating or throwing out old items.  Did you know in the Chicago area (and probably many others), in addition to glass, plastic, cardboard and cans, you can recycle junk mail, telephone books, wrapping paper and greeting cards?

For plastics, look at the bottom of the container for the recycle symbol with a number.  You can recycle #1-5 and 7, but not #6 or unnumbered plastics.

Here is a list of acceptable items to recycle in Chicago. Other ideas to help the environment include using reusable bags and BPA free water bottles.
