More of your recycling questions answered!

"What should I do with cooking oil, like bacon grease and oil for frying?"

Recology recommends that small amounts of grease should be be wiped up with a paper towel and put in the compost bin. Large amounts of grease should be stored in a container and dropped off at the Shoreway Environmental Center in San Carlos. Containers of up to 15 gallons can be dropped off. In general, Recology does not accept direct amounts of grease in any bins. Grease should never be poured down the drain.
"Can Tupperware containers and specifically, the lids, be recycled?"

All plastic containers and lids that have the symbol of the chasing arrow on them and are numbered 1-7 may be recycled. The types of plastics used in products varies greatly and only certain types of plastic can be recycled. Check for the chasing arrow and numbers on plastic products to know whether they are recyclable.
