"Joseph said the city should have focused more on contamination from the outset, better educating the public to keep items such as greasy pizza boxes and dirty peanut butter jars out of the recycling.

"There's a cost to putting the garbage in the recycling because it costs more to process it and pull it out,' Joseph said. "We obviously want to tell you what you should and shouldn't recycle. But for the folks who are just blatantly disregarding that, there needs to be level of enforcement that comes along with that."

Aluminum cans, glass & plastic bottles, most cartons, cardboard & cardstock of all sorts (but never anything with food on it), most paper, and all junk mail.

I try to recycle everything that I can. I make sure to wash all of the plastics that used to have food.

Does anybody know what happens with the plastic that is "recycled" around the triangle? Sounds like only certain types should be put in the recycling and the bad types just end up in the landfill anyway? Wonder if cardboard we recycle actually gets recycled here too...

if you don’t know if something is recyclable or not, throw it away

and

always look for the logo before recycling

and

never throw any kind of plastic bag in the recycling

N Texas takes a much more laissez faire approach to recycling. Honestly kind of annoying. Businesses aint gotta do shit, residents either. I’d much rather have more robust recycling regimen, if that effort was facilitated. In NC, it was better

If it's vaguely cardboard, plastic, or metal, it goes in the recycling bin. I figure i'm creating jobs by having someone else figure out what's actually supposed to be in there...
