Plastic Recycling Codes


We all know that we need to recycle our plastics, but did you know that there are different types of plastics and that you should not necessarily put them all in your bin at home? Some of them need to be taken down to other designated places to be recycled. Plastics have codes on them with different symbols that designate what type of plastic they are. The Daily Green posted a list with all the different types and codes for plastics. This list will help you figure out if your plastics are eligible for curbside pick up or not. I like this this also because it tells you what certain types of plastics are recycled into. So lets keep on recycling because we need to save as much energy as possible!!
