You’re Not Recycling The Right Way!
OK, maybe YOU are but many people are tossing things into the bins that absolutely SHOULD NOT go in the mix. We've made a simple visual of what's right and what's wrong. Pass it on!
All of us who spend the time to recycle in Bozeman have a healthy number of drop off locations, which is a great thing.
- Those plastic bags that you put all your beer cans in are a definite no-no.
- They need to be recycled entirely separately.
- You'll find collection boxes at most grocery stores.
When it comes to the can bin, absolutely NO SCRAP METAL should be recycled. Keep it basic.
When it comes to plastic, the plastic bags are obviously a "NO" but something else that shouldn't go in there are the "clamshell" plastic containers that you might find at a deli salad counter.
Brown grocery bags are NOT to be thrown in with the paper.....
