Don't put food waste and soiled materials like napkins, paper plates and pizza boxes in your recycling bin. Food waste causes recycling contamination and can turn a lot of recyclables into trash. Never
recycle plastic bags or plastic wrap, plastic cups, straws, Styrofoam, paper towels, or tissue.
Soggy boxes and papers can't be recycled so keep liquids out of your bin and empty all bottles, cans and boxes. Recycle plastic bags at your local grocery store. Remember, when in doubt - throw it out!
