While it's important to recycle, it's especially important to recycle right. Here are some dos and don'ts of recycling from Waste Management. Do not recycle plastic bags or plastic film such as dry-cleaning bags or bread bags curbside. They cannot be separated at the recycling processing center, jam up the machines and can cause fires and injuries to workers. Instead, take plastic bags and plastic wraps back to a retailer that can recycle them separately. Also, do not bag your recyclables, or they won't get recycled because we can't see what is inside. Place recyclables in your container loose and dry. You can do your part by recycling right - "When in Doubt, Throw it Out." And remember to buy products made from recycled content, too!
