Most recycling rules haven’t actually changed. You can still recycle common household items like bottles, cans, paper, and cardboard. However, it has become increasingly important that you ONLY place approved recyclables into your recycling container.
All non-approved items are considered contamination.
If a load of recycling contains non-recyclables, even by just a fraction – that entire load risks not being recycled. That’s according to new guidelines being enforced by China, a major importer of North America’s recyclable materials.
Only recycle approved materials to keep your recyclables free from contamination. It’s easy! Visit Recycle Right to view how-to videos and downloadable guidelines.
