You’re Not Recycling The Right Way!
OK, maybe YOU are but many people are tossing things into the bins that absolutely SHOULD NOT go in the mix. We've made a simple visual of what's right and what's wrong. Pass it on!
All of us who spend the time to recycle in Bozeman have a healthy number of drop off locations, which is a great thing.
- Those plastic bags that you put all your beer cans in are a definite no-no.
- They need to be recycled entirely separately.
- You'll find collection boxes at most grocery stores.
- CARDBOARD BOXES FROM FREEZER FOOD IS A BIG NO-NO
When it comes to the can bin, absolutely NO SCRAP METAL should be recycled. Keep it basic.
When it comes to plastic, the plastic bags are obviously a "NO" but something else that shouldn't go in there are the "clamshell" plastic containers that you might find at a deli salad counter.
Brown grocery bags are NOT to be thrown in with the paper.....But they CAN go in the cardboard bins.
