How to Be a Better Recycler

1. Know what items belong in the recycling bin (and what items have special recycling requirements, i.e. batteries, printer ink, and electronics)

2. Avoid contamination at the recycling plant

3. Look for alternative solutions to items that cannot be recycled in your curbside bin

4. Purchase recycled products (and/or products that come in recycled packaging)

5. Don’t just recycle material waste, recycle food waste by composting
