Are the items you are recycling actually recyclable?

July, 10, 2019

Are the items you are recycling actually recyclable? Watch the below video from WGN and learn why it is more important than ever to recycle properly. Remember: do NOT put your recyclables in plastic bags and always place them loosely in your bin. Plastic bags, flimsy plastic, hangers, batteries, diapers, and medical sharps NEVER go in your recycling bin no matter what community you live in.
