What can you recycle?

Interesting fact: The disposal of plastics products also contributes significantly to their environmental impact. Because most plastics are non-degradable, they take a long time to break down. By recycling plastics we are reducing the chance that plastic will end up in the environment causing a litter nuisance or affecting wildlife.
