When it comes to recycling plastics, you may think, “Because it’s plastic, it should be recyclable!”
However, if your local recycling service cannot easily sort the plastic product due to its size or shape, or if the type of plastic in your product has no buyers, it may not be acceptable for recycling. But that doesn’t mean all hope is lost.
Recycle Right New York wants to bring you to a place where we act within our power to sustainably manage the materials we come into contact with. Checking your local recycling guidelines is one way we can be more environmentally responsible in managing the plastics we encounter.
Recycling can be a complex topic, but reducing and reusing first simplifies things and makes recycling right easier. Free up your time and energy so you can spend more time doing what you truly enjoy. Find out more about how to recycle properly here.
